The Pension Service Partnership Fund
I am pleased to inform you that the following applicant(s) within your constituency has (have) been successful in the bidding process for the above fund:-
CAB, Tadley & District, Tadley
The Pension Service Partnership Fund is a unique scheme to enhance and build on our working relationships with the Government's partners in the voluntary and community sector, including local authorities.
The Fund of £13m will provide up to two years' funding to partners to undertake mainly local initiatives which will improve the take-up of older people's benefits, particularly by hard to reach groups. Its aims were developed in consultation with members of the DWP Partnerships Against Poverty group, a joint forum which includes national representatives from organisations such as Help the Aged, Age Concern and the Local Government Association.
I hope that you will join me in supporting these initiatives which will foster better working relationships at local level leading to improved customer service and enriched quality of life for our older people.
Malcolm Wicks MP
