mPower is an EU INTERREG funded project which works with older people (65+) living with long term health conditions across selected areas in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
mPower works with communities to enable older people to take the steps needed to live well, safely and independently in their own homes by self-managing their own health and care in the community.
The project has local teams of Community Navigators and Implementation Leads who work with people referred from health and care services to develop wellbeing plans which can connect them to activities in their community as well as connecting them to technology to enhance support for health and wellbeing. In Scotland the three areas involved in the project are the Western Isles, Ayrshire and Arran and Dumfries and Galloway. It is delivered by the local health authorities working with NHS National Services Scotland, UHI and SCVO. This is a 5 year project which will run to the end of 2021.
