Our mission at Age Friendly Melksham is to facilitate that everyone can participate in society. We believe that every person has a role to play in our community, where their age is simply a number not a hurdle. Working with friends, colleagues, peers and professionals we want everyone in our community to be involved, heard and valued.
To support people who are “trapped” in their homes in the Melksham Community Area through infirmity, mobility or other reason to live involved and fulfilled lives by providing support with shopping, home maintenance and social isolation.
To develop, support and encourage social activities for people in the community, providing a signposting service to the various clubs, societies and venues in the Melksham Community Area.
To encourage inter-generational work in the community helping develop an environment where age, whatever it is, is not a barrier to participation
To promote and encourage the community of Melksham to develop its Age Friendly Status
We are delighted to be leading the Melksham Community Support Scheme, supporting people across the Melksham Community Area.
