Shielding & Older Adults

In response to the current Covid-19 pandemic, a directory has been compiled for Hall Green and the whole of Birmingham, including essential support services and activities for older adults. The directory includes support for food, befriending, mental health, financial advice and much more.

We hope that this directory will be of use to local citizens as well as health and social care teams, professionals and practitioners working in Hall Green and community groups and organisations.

Using the buttons below you can download the Hall Green specific parts of the directory, listing services and support available as at July 2020.

If you are currently operating and providing services for older adults in Hall Green and are not already included in the directory, please get in touch with us by emailing HallGreenNNSTeam@accordgroup.org.uk.
