Neighbourhood Network Schemes and Community support organisations
Neighbourhood network schemes
Neighbourhood network schemes are community based, locally led organisations that enable older people to live independently and pro-actively participate within their own communities by providing services that reduce social isolation; provide opportunities for volunteering; act as a “gateway” to advice, information, and services; and promote health and wellbeing to improve the quality of life for the individual.
Community support organisations
Community support organisations encourage older people to live independently and to participate within their own communities. They provide services that reduce social isolation; act as a “gateway” to advice, information, and services; and promote health and wellbeing and therefore improve quality of life for older people across the city.
