Why Extra Care Housing - Community Hubs § What older people in Gloucestershire told us they wanted: ü Locality hubs based in the centre of their communities ü That any hubs must meet the needs of both urban and rural communities in the County ü That mini-hubs should be created in villages ü Hubs should be allowed to evolve over time so that the community could take ownership of them

Community Hubs - Exceeding our expectations -
Community Hub Development - The key to our success § The programme was founded on firm platform of statistical evidence ü Priority areas of need in the County were identified at an early stage § The enthusiasm of organisations across the County ü Worked in partnership with the County Co-ordinator to identify suitable venues for the hubs § The pump-priming of the hubs during the first 12 months enabled the services to be set up and work towards a self-sustaining outcome § ‘Taster sessions’ for local people to: ü Experience the kinds of activity that could be available to them and propose other activity possibilities § A newsletter, ‘Hub. Life’ which gives feedback on the activities taking place in the hubs and provides inspiration to introduce additional events
Why Extra Care Housing - Community Hubs – Next Steps § Develop additional marketing material to promote hubs § We are instigating a hub evaluation programme so that we can identify achieved outcomes § Widening the scope of the hubs -which will include a GP social prescribing pilot § Link the hubs together which will enable more older people to take advantage of individual events § Working with the Barnwood Trust with their ‘You’re Welcome’ Campaign
It’s time for you to contribute Let’s concentrate on partnership working
Extra Care Housing - The key to success – partnership working - § We need to ensure that we get the right people at the right time into the right part of the system 1. For ECH to be successful partnership working is essential – what would you identify as the key measures to put in place to achieve this? 2. Fast track housing allocations for the people who have been assessed by social care as vulnerable and needing better housing urgently? 3. How would you develop virtual extra care and a more co-ordinated approach to delivering services which would enable people to continue living in the community?
