Final Report: Street Links - Richmond Hill Elderly Action
Street Links was about finding local vulnerable and isolated older people, and gently connecting them with their neighbours and the local community. This project came to a close in October 2017.
The Project built a chain of connections between older people, street agents (neighbours), Richmond Hill Elderly Action, statutory and voluntary agencies and the community culminating in an unbroken circle of support for their most vulnerable, lonely and socially isolated older people.
The aim was to reach wider across the whole area and deeper in to each street, supporting neighbourly relationships and offering more, different opportunities and support to service users, volunteers and the community.
The final report gives an overview of what went well and what we learned from this project.
