First Contact Checklist launched to support older people in Bristol

Following on from a pilot last summer, organisations across Bristol are joining up thanks to Bristol Ageing Better to support vulnerable older people in the city.

The First Contact Checklist project will help older residents get the support they need by ensuring that the first organisation they contact is able to easily refer them on to other services around the city. For instance, if a firefighter visits to check an older person’s fire alarms, they might notice that the house is chilly. The First Contact Checklist will allow them to refer that older person to another service that could help, such as The Centre for Sustainable Energy.
