Mobile Warden Scheme grants
Mobile and Community Wardens Schemes (sometimes called Community Care Schemes) exist in South Cambridgeshire to support older people to live independently in their homes and in the community they know, and which knows them. South Cambridgeshire District Council offers grant funding, via an application process, to support these schemes.
The warden schemes are complementary to statutory care services and do not duplicate or replace the medical or social care services that individuals may also require. They can help to combat loneliness and social isolation and can provide significant benefits to clients at relatively low cost and are seen by clients and their families as a vital community-based service.
South Cambridgeshire District Council has been providing grant funding to Mobile and Community Warden Schemes for many years. The annual grant application process has now closed for 2018-19.
