Knowsley Older People's Strategy
A strategy owned and driven by community representatives and cross-partnerships.
Knowsley’s Older People’s Strategy 2018-2021 is designed and delivered by Knowsley’s Older People’s Strategy Group, made up of representatives from the community, Knowsley Council, Knowsley’s Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), North West Borough Health, Merseytravel, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, Knowsley Pensioners Advocacy and Information service, Knowsley Older Peoples Voice (KOPV) and Knowsley Carers and the Alzheimer’s Society.
Residents, carers and partner agencies came together to help to shape the development of the Knowsley Older People’s Strategy for 2018-2021 ensuring it responded to the needs and aspirations of an increasing older population. As well as holding consultation events, an online consultation was also available, helping to capture as many views as possible on the issues affecting our older residents.
As a result of listening to people who use care and support services, their carers and the wider community, the Knowsley Older People’s Strategy 2018-2021 was developed and published, setting out the strategic priorities for supporting older people over the three years.
