About the Service
Covid-19 Update: Our social prescribers are are still available online and by phone... Keep yourself safe, protect and look out for others. You can call us on 01475 728628 and speak to a Community Connector. We'll return any calls we receive.
The emphasis of the Community Connector role is often on creating opportunities to bring people together, maintaining, encouraging and creating networks and friendships, and promoting activities that help to overcome the risks faced i.e poor health outcomes of many individuals who are lonely and socially isolated.
With an ageing population, increasing loneliness/isolation, and the prevalence of poor mental health there is a real need to find new ways of providing high quality health and social care. Community Connectors are one of these new ways, working with individuals to ensure they are supported to join in activities, access services and generally feel better connected to their community helping increase their health and wellbeing outcomes.
