Connecting With Others
Now, more than ever, we want to help people establish and build their support network, confidence and even friendships. This might be attending a group, attending a virtual group, or connecting with another person who has similar interests to you. Connecting with another person is a great way to do this.
Our Community Connectors will support individuals working with TPA to safely connect with others of similar interests on a one-to-one basis. We will work with people to establish what type of connections feels best for you, identify your hobbies and interests and connect you with another person of similar interests.
Our connectors will only share your agreed contact details with others with your consent. Going forward, how much information you share is personal to each person. This may be a name & phone number, or you may connect through social media. We will work with you to establish what feels right for you. We will never share information without your consent.
When connecting with others, it is important that you feel safe and comfortable at all times. Whilst we take every care to connect you with someone with the same interests, we cannot always know the full circumstances of the person we are connecting you with.
We would recommend you take your own measures to keep yourself safe.
Our tops tips to keeping yourself safe:
· Stay in control when it comes to how and when you share information. Don’t share your contact information, such as your home address, during initial conversations.
· Take things slowly and share more information when you feel comfortable doing so.
· Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.
· Remember, you can end the contact with another person at any time.
