Social Prescribing

There are many non-medical issues that can make people feel stressed, isolated or unwell.  Community Connect is service which supports local people to improve their health and wellbeing by connecting them with activities, support and services in the community. 

We can help you to find support for issues outside of the usual care that your GP or nurse may be able to provide.  We will talk through any problems that you are having and what is key to your wellbeing, then help you to find activities and services that may make a difference to your life and offer support to to access them.

 What we connect you to:

• Education and learning opportunities
• Healthy living, physical or outdoor activities
• Socialising, counselling and support groups
• Arts, music or cultural gatherings
•Employment skills, volunteering or self-improvement

We’ll speak with you on the phone or face to face:

1. Talk through problems you are having
2. Discover what’s key to your wellbeing
3. Help you access support, activities or services
4. Support you to make best use of them
