Community Connect is a service run by Curo (in partnership with WERN) covering the whole of North Somerset.
The service has Community Agents and Community Development Workers working actively with people throughout the area to link them with information and support.
The purpose of the service is to support people to stay connected, supported and active in their communities so that they can remain living independently at home for as long as possible.
The service is different to Care Connect, the local authority call centre for information on Health & Social Care. With Community Connect there is the opportunity for someone to have face to face contact with a representative (via a home visit to tease out issues that may be of concern to people in a more informal way].
Community Connect improves awareness of services, providing support and advice to help people access the services they need.
This may include; access to social groups, increasing income, maintaining their home safely or considering other options for housing, reducing isolation and loneliness and promoting independence through befriending.
If you would like to get in touch for information, to ask for advice or to request a home visit to talk over a query or problem please phone 01275 888803.
