From Little Acorns

Age Concern West Midlands through its network of groups and organisations has started a brand new project across the West Midlands region.  The OAK (Older people Advice Knowledge base) Project aims to get information and advice out to a wide range of older people who are the hardest to reach in the rural community and are often isolated and vulnerable.

To achieve this, the OAK Project is using a variety of delivery methods, such as home visits or talks in community settings, for example.  In addition to this we expect to roll out good practice.  For example through building on the successful Parish Links project in Shropshire we will be able to extend this to North Staffordshire.  We will be trailing the use and effectiveness of written information in the form of packs.

Mary Harris, Information and Advice Officer at Age Concern Warwickshire, said, "this will be a really exciting opportunity to develop advice services on a whole range of topics for older people who usually get left out and who may be housebound or in difficult to reach locations".

This project aims to improve access to social welfare advice and information and advice for older people now as well as planning for the future by building a knowledge base to understand the needs in the longer term.

There will be some great opportunities to get involved at all levels. If you have any ideas you think may help, and the parish network is going to be vital in ensuring the success of this project, please get in touch with Mary Harris on 01925 458100.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
