Project Coordinator – Neighbourhood Network Scheme

Ladywood Neighbourhood Network Scheme - background

Neighbourhood Network Schemes’ (NNS) are Locality and Constituency based networks designed to engage and develop services for older people (aged 50+) – connecting people, groups and places at a neighbourhood level.  The NNS approach is integral to the new ‘Community Social Work’ model and examples investment in ‘Prevention First’ through Adult Social Care Services.

NNS will support older people by increased ‘social participation’, ‘healthier lifestyles’, ‘maximised income’, independent living’ and ‘support for carers’.

Birmingham City Council has commissioned Birmingham Settlement, Karis Neighbour Scheme, Nechells POD and Soho First CDT to deliver NNS outcomes for the Ladywood Constituency comprising the wards of Aston, Ladywood, Nechells, and Soho.

Information about the partner organisations can be found on their respective websites:
