What we do…
HEA supports vulnerable older people who live in the community. Holbeck is a very challenging Neighbourhood, one of the most deprived in the UK, which falls into the 10% most deprived in England which is classed as a Middle Super Output Area. The Generation Strain 2014, states the Neighbourhood Network Schemes, of which HEA is a part, is nationally recognised as a very successful UK initiative working with communities to strengthen existing relationships and resources, keep older people socially and physically active, empowering them to take control of their own lives and make better choices and live in the community longer.
Many older people are lonely and isolated with chronic health conditions. Loneliness also has a profound impact on quality of life, with serious implications for physical and mental health issues. We inspire older people to get involved and be healthier.
