Community Advice Hubs
Age UK Solihull has been commissioned by Solihull Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to provide the Solihull Community Information & Advice Hubs. Located in Chelmsley Wood and Central Solihull, the Hubs enable all residents aged 18 or over to receive high quality information, advice and access to services that meet their needs.
In the first full year (Apr 2015 - Mar 2016), 7,054 people accessed the Community Advice Hubs. 19,477 contacts were made with customers or on their behalf. 5,986 referrals were made to local partner organisations that could help support individuals with their specific needs.

Feeling stressed or anxious?
If you are aged 50 or over, join our free confidental service aimed at supporting you to find techniques and coping strategies to get back to enjoying life. Our drop-in service is available on the 1st Wednesday of each month between 10:00am and 2:00pm.
Age UK Solihull is excited to announce that for a period of one year, the campaign will work alongside the British Gas Energy Trust funded Healthy Homes Project. This project will specifically focus on the impact of cold homes and the resulting health problems that can occur, particularly amongst those with pre-existing health conditions that are exacerbated by cold.
