Bee Busy, Befriend

BEE Busy Be Friend is a new project aimed at helping people in our community. BEE Busy Be Friend was initially funded by The Reshaping Care for Older People Change Fund better known now as the Health and Social Care Integration Fund. This fund is aimed at improving services for older people by shifting care towards anticipatory care and preventative spend.
BEE Busy Be Friend has been operational now for 8 years and has gone from strength to strength.
