Durham County Council has developed a new website called Locate (find it at www.durhamlocate.org.uk) which contains a wide range of care and support products and services, leisure and community activities to help local people to live as independently as possible.
Locate offers options for support at home, such as help with odd jobs, everyday living aids, equipment to make life easier and home care. It includes voluntary services, support for carers, day care opportunities and residential care information. As well as listing opportunities to keep active and involved such as clubs, sports and social activities.
The easy-to-use site also features a journey planner to help people plan their route to services on foot or by car, bicycle or public transport, and a link to the Care Quality Commission website, where ratings for regulated services are available – click here to see Locate in action.
