STAYING safe at home and in the community is a top priority for the elderly in Havant, a survey has revealed.

In response to the survey, charity Community First is joining forces with Havant Borough Council to host a conference to address older people’s safety concerns.

The conference will be on Thursday, August 21 from 10am to 3pm at the Public Service Plaza in Civic Centre Road, Havant.

There will be information stands and workshops led by groups including Mind, the Southern Domestic Abuse Service, Trading Standards and the Havant Men’s Shed.

Organisers will provide a light buffet lunch and refreshments and can arrange transport to and from the plaza for people who want to attend.

The conference is free but advance bookings must be made by calling 0300 500 8085 ext. 9721 or e-mailing michelle.delariviere@cfheh.org.uk.
