A NEW scheme called Life Changers has been launched in Fenland which offers help to older people coping with financial or housing problems.
Life Changers is funded by Roddons Housing and Fenland District Council and is a new service being offered by Age Concern in Cambridgeshire.
The service is available to older people living in Chatteris, March, Whittlesey, Wisbech and surrounding villages.
Kathy Dougall, Life Changers organiser, said: "Older people can find it difficult to access help because they may have problems leaving their home or travelling.
You may also want to watch:
"Many older people do not have internet access and some may have problems with hearing, making it difficult to use the telephone, sometimes they simply can't cope.
"Life Changers provides information and support needed to enable them to cope better, the service will be provided either over the telephone or by home visits, whichever is most suitable for the client."
