Continuing to support the needs of our local community
Whoever you are, whatever the problem
During the coming year we will continue to provide a single point of access for local people wanting information and advice.
In addition we are supporting Kingston Council and colleagues in the voluntary sector to establish the Connected Kingston website, which has information about local Health and Wellbeing services.
This project aims to make it easier for people to 'get connected' with health and wellbeing services within the community. It is anticipated that easy access to clubs, organisations and health services will help local people to help themselves and potentially prevent wellbeing issues arising.
This project is distinct from and complementary to our work in kiaa, which focuses on community services providing information and advice , from information about personal rights and responsibilities to obtaining help to pursue a complex case at a court or Tribunal.

Identifying research priorities about older carers
Nan Greenwood, Raymond Smith, Sally Brearley and Carole Pound
The project ran from January to August 2018. Our intention was to explore the experiences and research priorities of older (70+ years), unpaid, family carers from the perspectives of both older carers themselves and also the volunteers and professionals who work with them.
This summary provides an overview of what we did and what we found.
