A new way for residents to access information, advice and help to get online is being piloted in Alcester. ‘Let’s Talk’ in Alcester will look at what difference can be made to people when these services are delivered locally in the community.
The initiative, which is being run in partnership between Alcester Town Council and Warwickshire County Council, will run for six months testing what does and doesn’t work to influence future plans.
Councillor Kam Kaur, Warwickshire County Council’s Portfolio Holder for Customer and Transformation said: “We want Warwickshire to be the best it can be, where communities and individuals are supported to be safe, healthy and independent. Information, advice and services are increasingly becoming available online; Let’s Talk will support people to find the information and advice that are important to them from a wide range of organisations. It aims to enhance the activities already taking place in local communities and we are working with statutory, voluntary and community partners to determine the right local offer. The service is open to anyone; it will start in Globe House with consideration also given to other sites used by the public.”
Let’s Talk is happening at Globe House, Priory Road at 9:30am-5:30pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and at 10am-4pm on Saturday. Globe House is also home to the Roman Museum (same opening hours) and Alcester Town Council . While there people can also access the library, and various activities throughout the week including Silver Surfers, Crafternoon Tea and a board games group.
