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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 07967769976 to either discuss how we can support or to arrange a visit.
