New community focused direct referral project seeks local community providers for mutual attraction and connecting with local people!
Connect Well, the new social prescribing project in Mid Essex has just been launched! The project aims to raise awareness of the excellent support that exists in our local communities from self-help groups, to lunch clubs, respite and carers support to social and leisure activities and organisations like yours.
Connect Well is about sign-posting people to non-medical sources of support such as emotional, practical, and financial help. It’s about connecting people into their local communities to access the community and voluntary support offered so they have more opportunities to improve their health and well-being, meet new people and even become volunteers themselves.
We are now seeking community and voluntary sector providers to join this exciting, trailblazing project. It’s very simple to join – just complete a simple form. If you would like to be involved or would like a visit to find out more, please email Sian Brand at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01245 351888.
