New services to support older people in Haslemere will be developed in partnership with the Haslewey Community Centre.
The council has allocated an annual budget of £26,000 per year, for the next three years, to help develop services and activities at the centre, aimed to support older people that may be lonely, isolated or vulnerable.
Haslewey will use the extra funding to employ an activities coordinator, who will develop new, meaningful, physically and mentally stimulating activities for older people.
Haslewey is part of the Service Level Agreement group, made up of twelve voluntary organisations that the council supports with an overall grant of £687,105 per year.
