A big thank you to Neighbourhood Cares

Posted on October 29th, 2019

For two years, the Neighbourhood Cares scheme has been working with residents of both St Ives and Soham to help support people on a local level in order to help those who require more support to be more independent. Sadly, this scheme has now come to an end and now Neighbourhood Cares will be suspending their services from October 31st of this year.

The scheme was a council run pilot project and has been hugely successful in the eyes of both patients of the Spinney and those on the team. Those working at Neighbourhood Cares have learnt a lot from the support they have provided and from here, hope that from the council’s evaluation of the project will then lead to improved services for those who do want more independence but may require assistance. From the scheme, we also hope that the Primary Care Network will be able to employ ‘social prescribers’ for the locality who will be able to provide support to appropriate patients and will be able to give more information about this in the event that this happens.

 

The Neighbourhood Cares team have posted on their Facebook page that from the success of the pilot, they will be continuing with drop in sessions which take place every Monday at the St Ives Library. These take place between 10am and 1pm and offer information, advice or the opportunity to talk to those in the community. Alternatively you can contact the County Council’s Contact Centre on 0345 045 5202 if you need any advice or information.

Communications are in place to those who have been supported by the pilot with numbers and information which may be helpful but please be advised that their telephone number (01480 379680) will be unavailable after the close of the pilot at the end of October.

 

We at the Spinney would like to extend a huge thank you to all those involved with the Neighbourhood Cares scheme. The feedback from our patients has been overwhelmingly positive and we are thankful for their support.
