First Contact Schemes – online video shows how they can work in your area

A second edition of the FirstContact Schemes: Extent & Impact Report was published in July 2014 by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel which surveys the current 35 schemes throughout the country which are looking at ways to link people to local services.

The EAC Directory of FirstContact schemes continues to build and allows people to easily list the available schemes and their contact information.


A pilot FirstContact Seminar was held in London in June 2014 and EAC and the Age Action Alliance are now actively pursuing ways to extend these Seminars to other parts of the country.


An online video has been produced which will allow those interested in developing FirstContact schemes to get an idea of how the schemes work and the issues to be considered when setting up schemes.
