Partnership for Older People in Pewsey (POPP)

‘POPP Partnership for Older People in Pewsey’ was created in February 2016 by Age UK Wiltshire in conjunction with Wiltshire Council, an event was held inviting all local organisations involved in supporting older people.

The key questions discussed were

  • How could services for older people be improved in Pewsey?
  • Would a partnership between local organisations be beneficial?

Everyone who attended thought a partnership would help support older people especially as other services contract. Priorities were identified such as looking at Community Transport and Support for Carers both of which were featured at the next meeting in July.

The aim is by coming together we can do more for older people in the Pewsey area. After the November meeting, we are looking at holding a community event in Spring 2017 – come along, bring your ideas and be involved!
