Vale and Selby Health Inequalities Project – Overview

The Vale and Selby Health Inequalities project is a collaborative piece of work including partners from:

  • The Integrated Care Board
  • Primary Care Networks
  • Public Health colleagues including GP’s, physiotherapists, OT’s and frailty specialists.
  • North Yorkshire Council
  • Leisure services and providers
  • And the Voluntary and Community sector.

Data illustrates that there is a concentration of clients that are vulnerable to mildly frail (4-5 as per the Rockwood Frailty Score) in specific areas of the above footprint.

Utilising the respective expertise of the above partners we have designed and will deliver a physical activity intervention to support those clients with trips and falls concerns.

The project will establish community sessions at Easingwold, Pickering and Tadcaster initially. These sessions will be delivered by OTAGO trained instructors working with clients on their strength, balance and coordination. Clients will be offered a block of 12 weeks at these community sessions with graduates being signposted to established local age-appropriate activities to enable sustained participation.

The project has resource to support clients with external barriers and concerns around taking part in a community activity and discussions can take place on a person-by-person basis.

Please find attached the eligibility criteria and the referral process if you could please consider this service for your clients. If you would like to discuss any of the above points in more detail, please don’t hesitate to give me a call.
