Partnership in wellbeing

Age UK Shropshire Telford and Wrekin recently announced an exciting new partnership, funded by Shropshire Council, which sees five voluntary sector organisations come together across Shropshire to develop a range of services promoting wellbeing and independence. The Wellbeing and Independence Partnership (WIPS) comprises Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin (Age UK STW), The Mayfair Centre, Oswestry Qube, Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) and Shropshire Rural Communities Charity (SRCC).

Age UK STW CEO Heather Osborne says, “We’re delighted to secure this funding from the Council and very excited to be working in this new partnership. As voluntary and community sector organisations, we’ve always worked closely with one another, but this partnership provides the opportunity for us to take this to the next level… to provide, develop and improve services which will help people across Shropshire improve their wellbeing.”

More organisations have expressed interest in joining the partnership and the hope is that it will grow and develop for the future. A wide range of services will be provided by the partners including help at home, befriending, living well activities, day services and opportunities for volunteering.
