Hounslow's Adult Social Care pop-up information shop has returned to the Alice Way Gurdwara providing support and advice to residents.
Published: Friday, 17th June 2022
The Adult Social Care (ASC) Pop-up Information Shop returned to the Alice Way Gurdwara after earlier this month to provide essential face to face information to residents seeking more information about support on offer.
Part of the Hounslow Disability Network Culture and Diversity event, the shop had a constant stream of visitors wanting to ask questions about care and support services or to pick up a leaflet. Support and advice on how to avoid and prevent falls, a source of serious risk - especially to older residents – was on offer to help residents stay safe.
The Worshipful The Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, Councillor Raghwinder Siddhu stopped by the stall along with Councillor Samia Chaudhary, Cabinet Member for Adults and Health Integration.
Cllr Chaudhary said:
“We’re delighted to be back at the Gurdwara providing advice and support to our residents. Hounslow Council provides a range of care and support services – and it is vital residents know about these and how to access them.
“We’re particularly keen to ensure older residents, their families and carers are aware of the danger of falls, and how to minimise the risks. It was great to see so many residents coming along to seek advice face to face – especially after the disruption of the past two years.”
The Pop-up has resumed bookings across the Borough after a long hiatus. While the Council encourages residents to use digital resources, the pop-up shop has proved a good way to reach residents who are not online and who still need and appreciate a printed leaflet.
