Heritage Connectors

Welcome to Heritage Connectors. This is a new initiative launched in Frome to promote the health and wellbeing benefits of engaging with heritage. This innovative project sits within Frome Medical Practice’s social prescribing and health coaching team, Health Connections Frome, with funding and support from Historic England. The initiative offers members of the public free training as Heritage Connectors, who then signpost others in their communities to sources of information and resources. This includes a directory listing local organisations delivering heritage and wellbeing activities, such as physical exercise through walks, volunteering or meeting others through Heritage Cafes.

If you are interested in attending a 45-min free session to train as a Heritage Connector, to learn how to signpost others and also to discover what benefits it can have for yourself, then book a place at one of the forthcoming sessions on eventbrite or just turn up.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a pilot scheme that aims to test the potential of local heritage to improve individual and community wellbeing in a set place (i.e., Frome). If it proves successful it will be offered for wider scaling up across the country with the support of Historic England.’
