Older People's Strategy

The Wandsworth Older People's Strategy sets out the vision for older people living in Wandsworth up to 2020. It has been produced by Wandsworth Council and Wandsworth Clinical Commissioning Group and it builds on the work from the previous strategy, which ran until 2013.

The new strategy describes the multi-agency preventative approach to maintaining health and well-being and, when needed, provision of care and support with dignity into older age. It sets out progress against the previous strategy and the future objectives across several "dimensions of ageing":

  • Health and healthy living
  • Housing and the home
  • Living in a supportive neighbourhood
  • Keeping connected
  • Getting out and about
  • Income
