What is LOOPS?

Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council, Pilmeny Development Project and City of Edinburgh Council’s Health and Social Care Department have been working to deliver a new initiative: Local Opportunities for Older People or LOOPS.

The initiative has a strong focus on localism and is working to develop local infrastructure solutions to some of the longstanding issues facing local older people:
• social isolation
• lack of information about local services
• navigation of often complicated systems
• apprehension about going to new places or fear of a poor reception.

LOOPs have a series of local meetings coming up. Please see here:June-July LOOP

We also hope to have LOOPs at the next ELPF meeting.
