Falls Prevention

Our mission is to provide an accessible service that helps to reduce the risk of falls, trips and slips in the community by responding to the reasons for these incidents and putting in place, where possible, steps to remove or reduce future risk. The Falls Prevention Service is part of the Community Intermediate Care Services for ACE. It is run by the Falls Prevention Team who work closely with GPs, other health and social care professionals, plus a team of specially trained volunteers.
