Working Together For Older People

Working Together for Older People (WTfOP) is a project led by Age Concern Chesterfield and District, working in partnership with Community Transport Providers and Chesterfield Time Bank. Financed by Bolsover Partnership the project began in April 2016 and covers the areas of Barlborough, Bolsover, Clowne, Creswell, Elmton, Hodthorpe and Whitwell.

Our aim is to increase social opportunities and quality of life for older people.

What is WTfOP?

Now entering its second year the project has been very successful and has exceeded all the targets which our funders set.

Beneficiaries in the main are those who do not have the ability to travel independently, use some type of mobility aid or are impaired by other limiting health conditions or sensory impairments. Accessible door to door transport, provided to the project by Community Transport Providers has been essential in enabling engagement with these older people who are most likely to be at risk of social isolation.

The project provides:

  • Support to individual groups
  • Meetings for Group leaders
  • A wide range of subsidised activities and outings
  • Working with other organisations to provide new activities
