Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire and Age UK Droitwich Spa have merged
Two local charities, Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire and Age UK Droitwich Spa have merged. All services will now be provided by Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire.
The Chair of Age UK Droitwich Spa, Peter Evans, said: “This is an exciting next chapter in the delivery of support for older people in Droitwich and I am delighted that we were able to secure the services currently being delivered and the prospect of introducing new programmes over the coming months. We are also delighted to be maintaining a presence in Droitwich to enable older people to access support more easily.”
Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire already provide a range of services across the district which enable people to remain independent in later life. The merger will provide a wider choice of locally accessed support for older residents of Droitwich Spa.
Philip Talbot the CEO of Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire commented: “We are pleased to be able to continue to support older people across the area. This merger also offers community volunteering opportunities as well, and I hope local residents will support our efforts in the future and help to make Droitwich a great place to grow older.”
These services include information & advice, benefit checks, handyperson services, practical help in the home, the Droitwich Spa Meeting Centre supporting people with dementia, help after a stay in hospital, support to use technology and get online, footcare and podiatry services, specialist support for older veterans and people living with dementia and community based active aging activities.
