Reset is an intersectoral partnership between Cyrenians, Queen Margaret University and Edinburgh Health and Social Care, designed to increase community resilience to support the health and wellbeing of people 60+ in the city of Edinburgh, enabling people to experience more good days.
We work holistically and in a person-centered way with people aged 60+ living in Edinburgh, offering comprehensive keywork to individual clients to break down the barriers which prevent them from living healthy, fulfilled lives, and offering support and advocacy to help clients have more resilience to cope with life adversities. We also work with colleagues in client/patient facing roles to help them access vital support for older people they support.
We also aim to gain a better understanding of how to construct a more efficient, effective, resilience focused and sustainable community support through development, delivery and evaluation of a city-wide resilience service, supported by a series of Participatory Action Research exploring experiences of and perspectives from older people recieving community support, staff delivering it, and referral partners.
This vibrant, innovative new service is a live example of system change in action; it is preventative, holistic, broadly available, and seeks to tackle what matters most to people, enabling them to have more good days.
