How does it benefit older people, their families and carers?
This project allows them to to build on the work they already do with older people and to reach out to those veterans, family members and carers who may need support.
The grant means they they can develop and test their services and learn more about how to get more out of later life. Their work has, at it’s core what older people want to achieve for themselves.
