One of the members of the Pensioners Convention was keen for me to visit the Life Plus shop, which has recently opened in Wolverhampton.
The new venture looks to support older people in a number of ways, including computer skills and help with benefits.
Some information from the service itself:
Life Direct is an advice service which provides information and guidance about a range of opportunities to help people make the most of later life. We support people aged 55 and over, as well as unpaid carers who look after people in this age group. We launched on 1st April, 2014. If you come across any person who requires our help and assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
