Older People's Well-Being Strategy for Hampshire

Ageing well in Hampshire

Older people spent time telling us how independence looks for them. This new strategy builds on what they told us and aims to address their key issues, for example - access to the right information at the right time, maximising income, being able to get out and about, join in their local community and maintain their home and garden.

Hampshire's first Older People's Well-Being strategy ( 2008 - 2011), used a partnership model to put in place the building blocks, with initiatives such as the Trigger Tool and OPAL information services, gardening support services, falls prevention physical activity programme ( Better Balance for life ).

With the on going support of all partners, the new strategy intends to reach out even further into the community and to develop the concept of "Ageing well in Hampshire".

This new strategy has been created with key partners and the resulting work plan will be overseen by the county Joint Older People's Well-Being Steering Group

Joint action plan for 2012/13

The action plan, for the second year of the refreshed strategy, identifies and prioritise the key initiatives agreed by the partner organisations and older people to achieve the aims and objectives of Ageing well in Hampshire – Older People’s Well-Being strategy April 2011- March 2014.

The resources to achieve this action plan are provided from volunteers and voluntary organisations, Hampshire County Council and other partner statutory organisations. The Hampshire County Council Older People’s Well-Being team will facilitate this to happen. Partners are involved jointly in the projects and initiatives outlined in this action plan in addition to the main work of their individual organisations.
