The First Contact scheme helps adults over 60 years old to access information to live independently at home and be more mobile.

The scheme uses a simple, quick and easy checklist of questions which agencies can use the first time they make contact with an adult over 60 years old.

The checklist helps to identify what information and advice is needed.

You can pick up a checklist from South Gloucestershire libraries or One Stop Shops and complete it yourself.

You may prefer to download the First Contact Postcard, complete it yourself and return it to us at the Freepost address on the form.
