Details of activity

People are being encouraged to have their say about proposals to bring together a range of health, social care and community support options under one roof.

Wolverhampton City Council is working with partners including Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to develop a community service hub at the former Warstones Resource Centre.
 
It is proposed that the centre, one of three such community service hubs planned across the city, would offer a range of health and social care support options, including helping people to maintain and regain their independence.

Wolverhampton CCG is currently exploring the feasibility of establishing an intermediate care unit at Warstones which would provide support options designed to bridge the gap between hospital and home. This could include physiotherapy, speech therapy and falls prevention, helping people who have been in hospital to recover their independence before returning home – and where possible prevent people whose health has deteriorated from needing to go into hospital in the first place.
 
It is also proposed to offer other support options, as well  as encouraging  people to live healthily.  It would also be the new home for Warstones Library and offer drop-in opportunities for the whole community, who could benefit from activities such as Tai Chi , art classes and bingo.
 
Meanwhile Third Sector organisations such as Age UK, Dementia Pathfinders and the Over 50s forum, would continue to be based at the hub.
