Better Care Stronger Communities Funding

As South Gloucestershire Council’s funding of the Shopmobility, Armadillo Senior Cinema, MS Therapy Centre Exercise Groups and WE Care and Repair services comes to an end, they are reviewing their use by and impact on residents.

From 1 April 2015 the South Gloucestershire Better Care: Stronger Communities funding has supported the voluntary and community sector to deliver services that build capacity and resilience within individuals & communities, supports unpaid carers, helps people to maintain connections and supports families & communities to self-help through peer support networks.  The agreements are due to cease on 31 March 2018.

We are unable to continue funding all of the initiatives that are funded through Better Care: Stronger Communities. To establish future delivery we are reviewing the impact of the services delivered by: Shopmobility, The Armadillo Senior Cinema, MS Therapy Centre Exercise Groups and WE Care and Repair to decide whether to continue or cease funding these organisations.

If you have used or benefited from any of these services we would like to hear your views, Please respond to the survey by 5pm, Wednesday 20 December 2017
