COVID 19 Update: Due to the current COVID 19 situation it is likely that many of the face to face organisations and services listed across our website are suspended. Please call to check first.
Do you want to find groups and support in the community that might help you improve your health and wellbeing? You can find lots of local support from charities to social groups in the Health Connections Mendip Directory.
Community Connectors are members of the community who know what’s out there and signpost friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to support in the own community. Community Connectors are very effective at integrating with their local communities – providing a bridge between local people and other services and building community knowledge. There are now over 1,400 Community Connectors across Mendip. From hair dressers, to taxi drivers. Sixth form students to people who have been working with a Health Connector. Anyone can be a Community Connector. There are regular training sessions that you can book on through Eventbrite or you can contact us and we will see if we can arrange to do training which is at a time and venue that is more convenient.
We have passed on this training to people all round the world. It is so simple. It is all about people doing simple signposting.
