We are delighted to announce that Sandwell Advocacy have been awarded three year’s funding from the Albert Gubay Foundation to deliver our Voices and Choices Project.
The project will employ an Independent Advocacy Practitioner who will provide support for older people in Sandwell with a long-term health condition.
The project aims to:
- Ensure that older people wishing to remain/maintain living independently in their own homes with appropriate support are able to do so.
- Ensure that older people and their families/carers/friends who are considering options around a move into care provider accommodation have access to relevant information and are supported to make informed decisions about their care options.
- Provide longer-term support delivered by a team of trained volunteers to address loneliness and isolation and ensure that vulnerable older people are safeguarded from harm and abuse.
We are of course extremely grateful to the Albert Gubay Foundation for their support.
Please look out for more information as the service is established. Should you have any queries in the meantime please contact Dave Bradshaw (CEO) on 0121 520 8070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
