Elders Outreach... our new normal
How have our operations in response to COVID-19?
We are contacting clients online and by phone to complete forms, where we cannot visit homes at present
We identify our most in need clients and call them regularly, offering support
We have tablet devices available for distribution to clients who have no technology
To arrange an appointment or just chat with one of our Elders Outreach team:
“I feel comfortable talking to friendly staff at Irish Community Services and feel that they understand me"
We offer a culturally sensitive service to older Irish people in our community who are often reluctant to access the services of other larger organisations. Our experienced staff provide tailored and individual support with form filling, claiming benefits, pensions and passport issues, transport and housing.
We can help with:
Completion of all forms and on-going support through the claims process
Exemptions and discounts
Blue Badge/dial a ride/Taxi Card
Referrals for care needs or equipment
Health, wellbeing and more
