Older people in Witney set to benefit from Community Grant
A Witney homecare provider has re-launched its Community Grant scheme.
A Witney homecare provider has re-launched its Community Grant scheme – a sum of money that could benefit any local group in West Oxfordshire working with older people or those living with a disability.
Bluebird Care opened its office over four years ago in the local area, and ever since has been working hard to support other organisations across the district.
Rob Mezo, Managing Director, said:
“As well as providing care and companionship services to people living in their own homes, Bluebird Care is passionate about supporting community projects and initiatives.
So many neighbourhoods thrive because of volunteers who work tirelessly to run community groups, host events and provide services that benefit others. Much of this work involves supporting older people who, without regular coffee mornings, day-trips or lunch clubs, would be left isolated at home.”
The care provider is making available £250 to a community group or initiative that works with older people within the district. The group that can best demonstrate a need for additional support will be allocated the funds.
Bluebird Care is a local provider of care in the home. They specialise in working with customers who live with dementia, physical and learning disabilities, and work alongside their families, Social Services, GPs and Clinical Commissioning Groups to ensure each person receives the care they need.
Nathan Hartley is coordinating the scheme on behalf of Bluebird Care. He says support will be offered to the successful applicant to ensure older people get the most from their Community Grant:
“The Bluebird Care Community Grant will also come with support and advice. We want to work with a local project that gives older people an opportunity to try something new and that will add benefit to their lives.
Examples of the type of projects we are looking for could include gardening, leisure, recreational or musical activities.”
