I am writing to ask for your help with reaching out to older people and carers in Watford Borough and Three Rivers District.
 
Firstly, We are undertaking a survey to find out more about what older people need and want to help them to make friends, feel better and remain able to cope. You will be aware that Watford & Three Rivers Trust run some services for older people and we want to ensure that these are remain interesting and useful for people.
 
Anything you can do to help us get the survey out to older people and carers would be most appreciated. Please complete the online version of the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/W6D6YB3
 
Secondly, we are currently preparing a “what’s on” guide for older people and carers to help them to get out-and-about in their communities. If you have any events or regular activities, including anything happening across the Christmas period, that local older people can come to, please let me know.
 
If you can help, please contact us on 01923 216967 or email me on carohart@w3rt.org  and I will arrange to have additional materials sent to you.
