Age UK - Grant Delivery Update - Natalie Stokes (Nac.16.01.2023/3)


Members received a presentation from the social inclusion officers at Age UK which provided an overview of the work undertaken over the past year, the key milestones, the next steps which included training and development for volunteers, digital inclusion, the facilitation and support provided to additional community groups, together with continuing to support individuals during the cost of living crisis.


Age UK was linked to both the local food and clothing banks, where it would make referrals on behalf of individuals where deemed necessary.  The foodbank had devised a package for older individuals.


Members were pleased to observe the work undertaken by Age UK to attract and engage with new/existing members through a variety of different methods which included attendance at the local Derby and Joan Club, Butterfly Dementia Group, Darton Wellbeing Group and through making house calls.


RECOMMENDED that Members receive the presentation.
