Blog posted by: Caroline Bernard, Tuesday, 22 October 2019.

Homeless Link is delivering new additional work to address early onset frailty, in partnership with Friends, Families and Travellers, the Mental Health Consortium, LGB&T Partnership, CHANGE, Citizens Advice and FaithAction, and Collective Voice. 

Health die-cut text

The aim of the ‘Reducing Health Inequalities for People living with Frailty’ project is to help NHS England identify:

  • Why there are inconsistences in the delivery of healthcare services to disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life
  • Opportunities to reduce and overcome the barriers to accessible health care that disadvantaged people experiencing frailty earlier in life face
  • How services and examples of good practice have successfully overcome the barriers to health care services that exist
  • Opportunities for primary and secondary health and care services to support people and to prevent the early onset of frailty

The project will include a series of focus groups and seminars aimed at the voluntary and community sector, NHS providers, and people with lived experience. For more information contact Sue.Christoforou@homelesslink.org.uk 

You can find out more about the work of the Health and Wellbeing Alliance and review its ouputs through the dedicated page on the NHS England website.
