Age UK Northamptonshire works with other organisations, both public and private, in order to provide the services that local older people tell us they need.
Age Well - working with Integrated Care Northamptonshire Health to support older people who have recently been discharged from hospital.
Integrated Care Northamptonshire - Age UK Northamptonshire is funded to provide a Collaborative Care Team and the Hospital Discharge & Community Team which support older people after a stay in hospital and help to prevent unnecessary re-admissions.
Marie Curie - We work in partnership with the national charity Marie Curie to provide the Extra Help at the End Of Life Service which supports people in the last weeks of their life, enabling them to remain at home with their loved ones.
Social Prescribing - We have integrated our Primary Care Network (PCN) based Social Prescribing Link Workers (SPLWs) into one team. The team of link workers is funded by the NHS in GP surgeries serving four Primary Care Networks (PCNs): East Northants, Wellingborough & District along with Red Kite and Triangle for Kettering. This work is carried out in partnership with 3Sixty Care, the GP federation, and the work is funded by National Health Service England (NHSE). Each of the social prescribers work to the public health identified health inequalities of the relevant PCN.
SPRING is a partnership of social sector organisations, commissioned by Integrated Care Northamptonshire, to improve the wellbeing of people in Northamptonshire using social prescribing. The partners are Age UK Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire Carers and General Practice Alliance (GPA).
