Available for residents living in East Cambridgeshire, Fenland and Huntingdonshire.

This service provides extra support for older people when most needed; particularly when experiencing a difficult period, such as a bereavement, ill health, financial worries, housing concerns, or perhaps negotiating around complex statutory situations.

Our aim is to work with the individual to access services and support networks, and together plan the desired outcomes making appropriate connections helping individuals to reach a point of confidence and self-reliance.

Our team will determine if the matters can be discussed over the telephone or if a home visit is more appropriate. Individuals can also visit our staff and volunteers in various venues at our Community Hubs.
