Community Connecting assist customers to find out more about their local community and how they can access some of the following:
- finding voluntary work, socialising, meeting friends or joining a club, further education; including college courses and other training opportunities,
- using their community facilities to do things that they enjoy,
- travel training.
Community Connecting provide a time limited service; with the aim of working with the customer so they are able to find, take part in their chosen community activity and to do this independently.
When Community Connecting receives your referral you will be allocated to a Community Coordinator, who will meet with you to register you to our service. Your Community Co-ordinator will ask you what type of volunteering or leisure interest you wish to pursue. They will support you to explore opportunities in your community; working with you to identify your existing skills and help you to develop any new skills needed. When found they then plan with you how you are going to get to your chosen activity/voluntary position and will support you in this for the appropriate length of time. Community Connecting will review their work with you regularly to ensure you are able to sustain your chosen activity/voluntary position.
