Help & Care will keep delivering the wayfinders and champions service, as part of the partnership for older people programme in Dorset, for a further five years
Help & Care is delighted to announce it has been selected to provide the Wayfinders and Champions service, as part of the Partnership for Older People Programme (POPP), across Dorset for a further five years.
POPP, which is funded by Dorset County Council and the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, aims to keep people living independently for longer. Wayfinders and Champions are employed in local areas to provide advice and support.
Help & Care secured the contract following a competitive retendering process. Originally only for people over 50, the service has now been extended out to all adults in villages and towns across Dorset, except for Bournemouth and Poole.
The changes are aligned with our vision of people living the lives they choose, we are in a fantastic position to empower and enable even more people to live safely and for longer in their own homes.Des Persse, Director of Services at Help & Care
