NEXT: I ATTENDED A MEETING ‘WAM’ THIS MORNING.
This is a group of over 45 voluntary organisations, offering support to residents in RBWM. We all find that communication about what is available, is the issue they all have. So many groups are doing brilliant work, which no-one knows about. I have asked each of the participants to let me have details of what they provide and who could receive those services and I will circulate details as I receive them. A lot are about building communities and assisting vulnerable, isolated people, particularly as a result of Covid.
THE ADVOCACY PEOPLE:
'The Advocacy People', would like us all to spread the word about a survey, which is due to close on Monday 28th February they emphasise that it is very important that people using the Public Health services, have a chance to have their say, details below:
Healthy Dialogues has been commissioned to carry out the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for Berkshire covering the six local authorities. The PNA is a statutory document that assesses the need for pharmaceutical services within an area. As part of this we want to capture the views of residents around how they use their pharmacy and we have developed a user friendly survey for this.
Please have your say by completing the survey at https://www.berkshirepublichealth.co.uk/information-centre/pharmaceutical-needs-assessment/
Below are some frequently asked questions and answers:
Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)
What is the purpose of the PNA?
The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a document which records the assessment of the need for pharmaceutical services within a specific area. The PNA sets out to understand the population health needs of an area by considering what pharmaceutical services are currently being provided and any gaps in any pharmaceutical services
What is the purpose of the consultation?
The purpose of the public engagement consultation is to see how the public are currently using their pharmacy to understand the needs of the population within that area.
Which groups are being included in the initial consultation?
The survey is open to all, and we wish to take a whole population approach to understand how the public use their pharmacy.
Which targeted groups are being included in the initial consultation?
In the first instance we wish to take a whole population approach, but where we find gaps in protected characteristics, the target group may include, BAME community groups as there is a high representation of these groups, and can be harder to reach.
What are the methods of the consultation and the timeframe?
We have an online survey which is easy access on all electronic devices, and we can also provide paper copies.
The survey is currently open and closes on the 28th February 2022.
Public Engagement Survey
'ABC Read', would like details of their services circulated:
They are a Berkshire based organisation and which offers volunteers an opportunity to be trained and supported, to go into local Berkshire primary schools. We take out references and DBS check our volunteers.
Lindsey is the Fieldworker for East Berkshire and has a number of schools who are eager to have an ABC to read volunteer, to support children who have fallen behind with their reading.
She would be very happy to provide more information should you need it.
‘People to Places’ is a charitable organisation, which has been providing community transport and Shopmobility services, since November 1989.
Our aim is to deliver independence and tackle isolation within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Most importantly, we offer a variety of friendly and accessible services, from community transport, to trips and days out.
It i s important to ‘People to Places’ to ensure that individuals with mobility needs can travel, wherever and whenever they want. In addition to these services, we also provide an essential service where People to Places can provide your groceries or pharmacy prescription, for those who may find it difficult to get them themselves.
Our ‘Community Transport’ and ‘Dial-a-Ride Service’ helps both individuals and community groups, who are residents within the Royal Borough, to travel both short and longer distances. If you are looking for some assistance to get to a hospital appointment, or need transport for a trip to the shops, People to Places is here to help.
‘Shopmobility’ is a scheme where you can get a mobility scooter on hire, loan of manual wheelchairs, powered chairs, and other mobility scooters to anyone with limited mobility. So no matter your age or mobility needs, we can provide the right equipment for you, to make travelling around much easier.
Trips and Days out: Socialising, interacting and being part of a group is very important to us. We provide a trips and days out programme for residents of the Royal Borough. We cover a variety of locations from the seaside, to a local pub lunch. Our programme runs regularly throughout the year so there is something for everyone.
Minibus awareness and driving scheme - MiDAS
We have trained trainers ready to provide quality MiDAS training to enhance the knowledge and safety for minibus drivers. If you would like to provide the best transport with highly trained drivers, book your training today!
There are many ways to get involved with People to Places and our community, from volunteering opportunities to fundraising with us. Every small (or big) role helps to play a part in making a big difference to our members.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
A new year, a new logo, a new beginning
Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.
In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.
There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV, for instance.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.
Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
