Rave bus rolls into Sandy
Date Added: 21/04/2016
Central Bedfordshire Council’s ‘Just Ask’ project is taking to the road again this week – to give residents the chance to find out more about social care, health and housing. More than 1,380 people visited the bus when it was last out and about in 2015
Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire are working in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council, Aragon Housing and their residents group (ROAR) together with the BCCG to host this year’s Just Ask.
The team will be visiting towns and villages across Central Bedfordshire on board our brightly coloured RAVE (Rural Area Vehicle for Education) bus, to offer advice, guidance and information on a wealth of topics relating to social care, health, housing and children’s services.
Whether you are looking for information from 0 - 99yrs there will be a range of professionals on board from different areas including children, young people, families, older people and carers. This one stop shop will have a wide range of information available.
The next ‘Just Ask’ session will be held in Sandy on Friday 22 April. The RAVE bus will be in the Market Square from 9am – 2pm.
All enquiries will be noted and any queries that staff can’t answer immediately will be sent to staff of the relevant organisation for a direct response. Cllr Carole Hegley, Executive Member for Social Care and Housing, said: "I would like to encourage all residents who want to know more about the range of services available to come along. People needn’t go out of their way, as the RAVE bus will park in a prominent location, allowing them to visit the bus while they are out doing their shopping. Please come on board and find out more for you, a family member, friend or neighbour."
