INTRODUCING THE OLDER PEOPLE'S PARTNERSHIP
HULL AND EAST RIDING
Older People’s Partnership Hull and East Riding (OPP H&ER) is a charity which was formed originally from two projects, Active Gold and Silver Dreams based in Hull in 2015. Healthwatch Kingston upon Hull became involved from the outset and together the organisation has developed.
Our primary objective is to promote improvements to the lives and services of older people, which quickly encouraged demand from other services to create a platform where skills, knowledge, activities and experience, could be shared among kindred organisations across the city.
The OPP H&ER has evolved and now has over 40 regular service providers and organisations attached to it, providing the opportunity for extensive partnership working.
It has developed into the ‘go-to’ organisation in Hull comprised as it is of a partnership of comprehensive and influential like - minded organisations each dedicated to supporting older people in our city and the surrounding area.
The OPP seeks to develop a strong bond with the ageing population of Hull through networking and consultation events, partnership-working and public engagement.
The Charity’s aims are to coordinate, provide and deliver events across the city and surrounding villages, which assist in the alleviation of loneliness and isolation, improved health and mental wellbeing and provide social opportunities for the ageing population.
The OPP encourages participation from external agencies and is keen to work with other groups in furtherance of our aims.
