Communities

We always look for the strengths in individuals and communities.

Our team of Community Connectors have a wealth of local knowledge, strong relationships and connections that help us link people together so they can build a lasting network around them.

Through our social prescribing approach, our Connectors provide opportunities for people to explore informal connections and networks of interest or benefit to them.

Community Connectors

Our Connectors help people to set up new groups, and offer guidance to strengthen existing groups for example, applying for funding opportunities, identifying community assets and promoting their work.

We invest time and resources to work with local partnerships such as Team around the Place to promote connections between people, reduce social isolation and strengthen the community.

Since launching In Your Corner, a non-contact boxing and wellbeing programme, last September, the Men’s and Women’s sessions have gone from strength to strength.

This is due in no small part to the support we have received at the outset from The Prevention Alliance and the collaborative approach taken to provide activities for service users which exercise both their mind and body.

This is a key partnership for us in Stockport and one we hope to develop as we look at additional activities for our residents.
