Voices and Choices Project

Our Voices and Choices Project works to support older people with long-term health conditions throughout Sandwell.

Key aims of this project are:

  • To ensure that older people wishing to remain/maintain living independently in their own homes with appropriate support are able to do so.
  • To 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.
  • To 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.

This project has been made possible with the support of a three year grant from the Lloyds Bank Foundation.
