The Elderly Care Project (ECP) is one of IDC North Easts longest running Community Welfare Projects. After realising the Elderly were being neglected in the society we live in today and the shocking facts about elderly people dying in the winter as they could not stay warm, we decided to do something about it.
Our Community Welfare Team regularly visits the elderly at their centres. At the start of each month we visit a centre in Greater Walker, where our team has been visiting for the last couple of years.
In 2016, we have been approached by AGE UK to visit their centre on a regular basis. In March we started our visits at their centre in Denton burn and sre looking forward to making many more visits.
