Age UK Leicestershire & Rutland are working in partnership with Turning Point to deliver the Last Orders project. Age UK are holding workshops across Leicester City, County and Rutland in order to raise awareness of alcohol unit measures, the affect it has when mixed with medications and understanding the impact which regular substance use can have on our bodies. Age UK will be offering information and advice about the various services which are available, encouraging people to receive the support which they need.
The Last Orders project is also guiding people over the age of 50 who are currently receiving support for their alcohol or substance use into different services. They meet with the person to discuss their interests or needs and then introduce them to a range of different projects, social groups and organisations.
