In acknowledgement of the benefits of preventative services and that often people find it difficult to know where to start to find this kind of support, a team of community connectors have been appointed. The team are information and signpost-givers and do not hold a caseload. They have undergone a significant training programme which includes help and support with things such as money management, housing, lifestyles (including mental health), social isolation, employment / training and accessing other preventative services such as healthy eating, regular health checks etc.

They are keen to have outreach at locations where there is likely to be a higher need, this includes dental practices in the borough. They would welcome the opportunity to speak to you or a colleague to see if it would be beneficial for them to either hold a regular drop in table in reception (eg weekly or monthly) or leave details and your staff can point people who need support in their direction.

Please contact or 07967769976 to either discuss how we can support or to arrange a visit.
