Community Connect helps people aged 50 and over to access services by providing information, promoting independence and choice. The service runs information, advice and social events giving an opportunity to talk about concerns you have. It can also provide tailored support for you to learn new skills and to set up groups and activities in your community. Community Connect aims to:
- reduce social isolation by giving the opportunity to be more active in the community
- support existing groups and help form new ones
- give older people the opportunity to have their say on the development of services through Senior Community Link
- give help to access and support services
Community Connect is provided by Curo in partnership with the West of England Rural Network.
