BID Services part of Solihull’s new Community Wellbeing Service

BID Services is delighted to be a part of Solihull’s Community Wellbeing services. This is a broader partnership of voluntary and community organisations who will be working together to improve the lives of Solihull residents. The new approach will promote self-care and independence, making it easier for people to find information and advice, as well as providing specialist support for those who need it.

The service will support people aged 18 and over living in the borough of Solihull who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired or have a dual sensory loss. The service will also support carers and young people transitioning from children’s services.

Starting on 1st April, 2019, services are being delivered from two accessible locations at the Solihull Library and the Bluebell Centre. A range of services will be offered including Information, Advice & Guidance, specialist equipment assessments, rehabilitation and mobility training and statutory adult social care assessments and support.

Carole Fry-Smith, Head of Operations, BID Services:

‘We are really delighted to be given a further opportunity to support people in Solihull with a sensory loss and are committed to working in partnership with the local community, offering support that enables people to live independent, happy and richer lives.’
