Communities 1st (formerly known as Community Central or the CVS for St. Albans and District) are happy to announce the publication of a brand new “Guide to Services for Older People”.
Produced with support from St. Albans City and District Council the guide includes useful information about activities and support available throughout the District. Readers will be able to easily look for help through the booklets colour-coded edges for each section which include Benefits, Bereavement, Care Support, Community Care, Mental Health and Wellbeing Services, Getting Online, Eyesight/Hearing, Equipment Hire, Finance, Housing, Pets and Transport.
Copies of the Guide can be picked up from the Communities 1st office of the Civic Centre Reception at the Civic Centre (Council Offices, St. Peter’s Street). A reference copy will be available at Libraries, the town and parish councils.
Stephen Craker, Chief Executive, Communities 1st says “This easy to use new guide will be a valuable tool for older people, helping them find services and community groups that can provide the support they need.”
An online version of this guide is available on both the St. Albans City and District websites www.stalbans.gov.uk/community-and-living/olderandyounger/older as well as Communities 1st website www.communities1st.org.uk
