Community groups in West Norfolk are being encouraged to list themselves in a new online guide to services for older people in the borough.
There are already more than 700 listings in the Living Independently in Later Years (LILY) directory, but officials are appealing for the public’s help to make the guide as comprehensive as possible.
Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk Council’s cabinet member for health and well-being, said: “We have lots of information from formal sources, but we know that there’s a lot going on at grassroots level that we haven’t yet captured so if you offer activities or services for older people, we would like to hear from you.”
The guide, which is being drawn up by the West Norfolk Partnership as part of the wider Prevention First programme to improve life for elderly residents, contains information on themes including money, social activities, health and transport.
From December, residents will be able to phone the borough council’s information centre on 01553 616200 for information from the directory.
It is hoped the list will be available online early in the new year.
Any groups in the area who want to be listed in the new directory should contact Joanne Mawson on 01553 616653.
