Abstract

Northumberland FISHNETS (Keeping older people Fit, Involved, Safe and Healthy through sustainable community NETworks) was 1 of 29 pilot sites of the UK Department of Health, Partnership for Older Peoples Project. Each pilot involved local authorities, their health and third sector partners in establishing preventative services for older people. The FISHNETS services addressed health, social and environmental factors that support older people to maintain independence and enhance their quality of life. A key objective was the promotion of wellbeing through the reduction of falls and related injury. The presentation will focus on the whole system response to falls prevention.
