Social Development Minister Anne Tolley has launched a new set of resources to help young people and adults to understand foster care.
Pictured here with Wesley Community Action Director David Hanna, the Minister endorsed Wesley’s youth-centred approach.

Wesley is delighted to announce the publication of “Supporting vulnerable older people in the community: Positioning Wesley Community Action to meet emerging challenges through setting and achieving best practice”.

This report, sponsored by the Lottery Grants Commission and written by David Pickens, identifies the emerging challenges that older people face to remain independent in the community, and sets high benchmarks for best practice, now and in the future.  The changing demographics of our population and the increasing complexities of managing to live independently, create a number of challenges for older people and the professionals who support them.  The recommendations challenge us all to work together to ensure elders in our communities maintain meaningful and dignified lives in the community, engaging with older people in a way that brings out the best in all.

 

We welcome your feedback to this report and trust it promotes social thinking and action to better support older people.
