NHS Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been working in partnership with local organisations here in Thanet to bid for up to £6m to develop projects that help older people (over 50’s) become less isolated, more actively involved in their communities and more involved in how services are planned and delivered.
As part of the bid application process, we are seeking views on what sort of projects would be good to start, or build on, that would help people feel more included and would have a positive effect on their general wellbeing.
Three focus groups (informal chat and discussion groups) will be running next week, one in Margate and two in Ramsgate for members of the public. The focus groups are confidential and anything that is reported in any of the bid writing documents will not be traceable back to individuals. The focus groups are aimed at older people (over 50’s), carers or anyone working with or supporting older people in Thanet and will last for one hour. Find out more here...
