Transport for Hospital Appointments

Great News!
For the past two years Age UK have been campaigning for better transport for older people to and from hospital.
The issue was a very low priority for politicians and at first no-one really wanted to listen, but thousands of you told Age UK about the long and stressful journeys you face just to get to appointments, so they kept fighting to have your voices heard.
And now they have succeeded!
They are excited to announce that they have won the campaign!
Simon Stevens, the CEO of the NHS, has announced that NHS England will begin a review of the patient transport system immediately – just as Age UK asked them to do.
This is proof that together we all have the power to change the things that matter to all of us.
I hope this good news spurs you on to keep fighting for the things we believe in, like free TV licences for all over 75s and a better social care system.

Citizens Advice South Hams

Citizens Advice celebrates with 80s Disco Night

Citizens Advice is 80 years old this September, which means all the small local charities that make up Citizens Advice, including our own in the South Hams, make it not only one of the largest independent advice providers in the UK but one of the oldest.
The charity is currently being supported by 4 South Hams law practices for its Wills Week 23 – 27th September, the practices are offering to write Wills for free for donations to Citizens Advice South Hams.
The local advice charity has now decided to let its hair down, throw caution to the wind and go full 80s crazy with a disco in Dartington Village Hall on Friday 27th September, complete with an 80s cover band and licensed bar. Doors open at 7.30pm, tickets £8 on the door or £6 online from (type “Citizens Advice 80s night” in the title box). Optional 80s fancy dress.
All proceeds go to Citizens Advice South Hams and will help them recruit and train more volunteers.
