Do you want to feel more involved in your community, meet new people or make some changes to improve your health and wellbeing?
Then why not let Connect Well help you make the first step towards making change a little easier.
Connect Well is a ‘social prescribing’ project stretching across the districts of Braintree, Maldon and the City of Chelmsford.
Through the use of ‘Social Prescribing Champions’ and an online referral tool, Connect Well hopes to link people to a wide variety of advice, activities and support including:
- Volunteering opportunities
- Befriending and social activities
- Support and self help groups
- Physical activities
- Managing your money
- Community transport
How does Connect Well work?
Social prescribing champions are located in venues like council and housing offices, leisure centres, pharmacies and GP practices.
The champions use an online referral tool, called Connect Well Essex, to search and signpost you to local groups, activities or networks.
