The City of Wolverhampton Council is encouraging people to have their say about community day activities for some of the city's most vulnerable residents.

They are designed to provide meaningful activities and social opportunities personalised to meet the needs of adults aged 55 and over who are socially isolated or are physically frail, have dementia or poor mental health, or have a physical or sensory impairment.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the delivery of these services with provision suspended for much of the last 12 months. The requirement for many services users to shield has also meant that the number of people attending services that have been running has been low. In addition, take up of traditional day services for older adults has been in decline for several years, both locally and nationally.

Councillor Linda Leach, Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: "We need to ensure our community services are delivering the sort of activities that people want and need, and so we want to hear from people who have used or are using these services here in Wolverhampton.

"We want these services to be responsive to the changing needs and aspirations of individuals, and also help to maximise their independence.

"This is a chance for you to tell us your experiences of receiving support from these services and to help shape provision going forward. Please take a few moments to complete the questionnaire or you can ask a family member or relative to complete it on your behalf."

To take part, please visit Community Activities for Adults. The closing date for comments is Friday 23 April, 2021.
