General information

Service offered: Jigsaw Support Scheme was set up in 2000 to help local people living in Mansfield to get the access to the support they needed to live independently at home.  Since then, services have been expanded to cover the whole of North Nottinghamshire and surrounding areas. Jigsaw’s range of social care services are aimed at helping people in Nottinghamshire to maintain their independence and have a better quality of life. Often older and vulnerable people find themselves in negative situations which are preventable. That is, if they have access to the right information and support delivered at the right time, offered in a flexible, sensitive and appropriate way. Services include: Housing Related Support – A free short term support service offered to vulnerable adults in Mansfield and Ashfield. Support can be offered with issues such as maintaining a tenancy, budgeting and finances, signposting to/accessing other agencies, and reading and explaining mail / Befriending Services – Isolation and loneliness affect many older people in Mansfield and Ashfield. Jigsaw’s one to one befriending service matches volunteers to those in need of company and friendship. The service is open to anyone over 60 years of age living alone with little or no family contact within the Mansfield and Ashfield areas. Group befriending sessions are also held in a variety of venues across Mansfield and Ashfield. We currently run 2 friendly and informal pub lunches hosted by a volunteer / Independence Service – Jigsaw’s Independence Service is for local people with support needs who require long term support and want to live their life, just the way they want to. The Independence Service delivers at home, high quality, trustworthy and caring support for adults across Nottinghamshire. The service is a charged for service which can be paid for using a personal budget taken as a direct payment or can be self funded.
