Actively Engaged is a pilot website developed
by NHS Ayrshire & Arran's Allied Health Professionals (AHP) in
partnership with care providers from local authorities and the
independent sector. The project is funded by the Scottish
Government, and the project outcomes will be shared nationally.
Actively Engaged brings together evidence-based
practice, tools and techniques. The website offers a single point
of access for anyone supporting an older person in any care
setting. This can be in a hospital, in a day care setting in the
community, in a care home or in the person's own home.
