Local consultation for over 50's - polite shout going out

Hammersmith & Fulham Circle is a local community organisation for older people and we’re looking for opportunities to ask residents of all ages their thoughts on a new service we’re developing.

The Circle provides practical help around the home with things like DIY, gardening and cleaning for its members, who are all over 50. Since we've started providing our service we've heard from people younger than 50 who would be interested in getting some practical help themselves. We've also heard from older people who would be interested in earning a bit of money helping others out.

So we're investigating the potential of a new service we are calling Helper+, a service in which anyone in the borough can get access to the skills and experience of one of our older helpers for any practical help they may need around the home.

To make sure that we design a service that would be really useful we want to hear from people who buy services to make their lives easier and better. We’d really appreciate it if you could help us find out the opinions of as many people as possible. There are four main ways to be involved...

 ·      Give us just 20 minutes of your time for a telephone interview

 ·      Pass this message on to other people who might be interested in helping us

 ·      Take our simple online survey here

 ·      If you know anybody over 50 who might like to earn a little money helping out, then put them in touch!

To take part, and for more information, contact them –
