Tim Woolmer, KCC Corporate Policy - Shaping Later Life

Tim will provide an overview of the work being done to improve later life for those around us.  He will talk about taking forward Kent’s Living Later Life to the Full Policy Framework which was developed over a year ago, based upon widespread workshops and consultations with Kent residents, public agencies and the community and voluntary sector.  Tim’s presentation will focus on how these reflect the issues and concerns that are important to the older people of Kent, and how these can be addressed in the context of the national economic situation.

From November 2009, Carers’ Support began supporting carers living in the Thanet area.  Trisha will talk about the work of their organisation which provides support for people over the age of 18, who live in Thanet and Dover, and who have an unpaid responsibility to look after relatives or friends with physical, learning or mental health needs.
