Social action fund to keep elderly out of hospital

A new government fund will support services that use social action to help older people stay well, manage their conditions or recover from illness or injury, and thereby reduce pressure on hospitals. The two million pounds available for Supporting Older People and Reducing Pressure on Hospitals will help community and volunteer-led projects provide extra support to older people next winter.
