Partnership work in this area will lead to improved satisfaction and importantly, will reduce the deprivation rating for our rural residents.

We will do this by:

  • Understanding the issues facing those living in rural areas; particularly with regards to transport and access to health services
  • Meeting the specific needs of older residents and helping them to engage with public services so that they receive the support they need
  • Working with people throughout their lives to maximise the length of disability free life.
