SAS Announcements: Christmas Newsletter 2018


Christmas Newsletter 2018


It is that time of year again, time for the SAS Christmas newsletter.  2018 has once again been a busy year for the Seniors Alert Scheme.  We are still seeing a steady increase in the number of participant’s applications, as at 30th November we have approved 17,968 for 2018 a cumulative total of 39,199.
The information is reaching more and more people each year, this is down to the hard work and commitment of community groups and the volunteers who have freely given up their  time to help make communities a better and safer place for the older people in our communities. 
On behalf of Pobal, we would like to thank you so much for all of your work and your assistance in providing this vital service to older people in your community.
2018 was not without its challenges but we powered through and found our feet with the new scheme which has proven to be a great success.  
If you need any assistance over the Christmas period these are the Christmas opening hours for the online support team: -
·         Monday 24th December          9am – 4.30pm

You can contact the online support team on 01- 5117222 or email . Please note the regular SAS team will be back from the 2nd January.
How can we improve our service to you?
