The Committee received an Annual Report on the work of the Elmbridge Older Persons Advisory Body. The Advisory Body had met on three occasions during the year and the report detailed the issues and activities considered at these meetings.
During the year the Advisory Body had received presentations in respect of the changes to sheltered housing schemes as a result of the funding withdrawal from Surrey County Council; an update on the Centres for the Community Task and Finish Group review; and the support provided by the Council’s Leisure and Cultural Services Team to older people in the Borough and joint working. In addition, the Advisory Body had held discussions on the real effect isolation had on older people and had reviewed the performance monitoring of Community Support Services over 12 months. This Body also provides support to the Elmbridge Trust for Older People.
