Grants for older people’s services

FUNDING of £10,000 has been approved by Adur District Council to boost the wellbeing programme for older people.

The money will come from the 2015/16 Adur Grants Budget and Worthing Borough Council will contribute a further £22,800 from its own grants budget.

The grants are part of a multi-agency approach to health and well-being and forms one part of a community-based structure, leading to improvements in health.

David Simmons, executive member for health and wellbeing, said the grant would assist with the development, maintenance and co-ordination of key services for older and more isolated people across the district.
