Ageing Well in Daventry District

The Daventry & District Forum worked with Daventry District Council on the 'Ageing Well in Daventry District 2017-2021' strategy.

Both DDF and the Council want Daventry District to be a place where older people are able to live independent, healthy and active lives for as long as possible. We believe older people should be valued and listened to. We want accessible and flexible services for older people that have been developed with the involvement of older people, regardless of disability, ethnicity, gender or any other characteristic.

The Strategy and its accompanying Action Plan sets out how we intend to achieve those aims. You can find out more below:

The DDF is a member of the Local Lotto, a weekly online lottery created to support local causes in Daventry District. 

Tickets cost £1 per week, with 40p of every ticket you buy going to the DDF should you choose to support us when buying your ticket. An extra 10p from every ticket you buy goes into the Local Lotto Community Pot, which groups such as ours can bid for a share of, so it is a great way to support local good causes.

There are also a range of prizes on offer, from £5 for matching two numbers, up to £25,000 if you are lucky enough to match all six!
