Chichester District WellBalanced Programme is regrettably CLOSED for new referrals
Although having exceeded targets, the commissioners are going to change the way they do falls prevention to a much more low key project that they can deliver, some themselves in house and signpost on to local providers of strength and balance type classes.  The current service will end as of 31st March 2017.
