Partnerships for Older People Projects (POPPs) is a programme where services target support towards people with broad ranging needs - from complex through to low level - to help them stay independent for longer within their own communities and avoid the need for higher intensity or instutionalised care in the future.

The new sites will be established from 1st May 2007, and will receive support from the Care Services Improvement Partnership. Together with the successful first round pilot sites, POPPS projects will now cover nine regions around the country.

The winning local authority partnerships are:
  • Rochdale
  • Tameside
  • Calderdale
  • Leicestershire
  • Croydon
  • West Sussex
  • Kent
  • North Somerset
  • Devon
