You may have noticed the term ‘frailty’ banded around much more frequently in the past year or so, though it’s a term we don’t use directly with those to whom it may apply it is a recognised long term condition; one which can be prevented, delayed and/or managed.

People living with frailty have traditionally been supported once they need urgent care but there is a shift towards a preventative and proactive response to slow the progression of frailty, and enable people to live good lives.

The third sector has an important role to play here.
