Our key areas of work

We have developed two key areas of work to achieve our aims. They are:

Partnership working

Partnership working has been at the centre of the teams work and has given us our success. We work in partnership across the county council and with organisations including district councils, health, voluntary and community organisations, the Pension Service, the Fire and Rescue Service and the Police. This way of working has also helped forge new alliances between organisations, which has resulted in more joined up working and the development of projects.

We have established a Joint Older People’s Well-Being Steering Group to take our work forward. This has representatives from county council departments, the voluntary sector and other organisations. The steering group has helped us develop and support the initiatives and projects we have developed.

We also have regular meetings with colleagues from the district and borough councils.
