Positive wellbeing

How we can support you

Our highly trained community connectors can support you to live well at home and become part of your community. They challenge the disconnection, loneliness and isolation many people face and support you to reconnect, be active and have purpose – your own way. We can meet you in your home or arrange an appointment by phone or video.

If you are feeling isolated or lonely, then maybe a community connector can help you find positive wellbeing.

Would you like our support?

Our community connectors work in various communities across Kent. If you are looking for positive wellbeing support, or want to refer someone else for support, you can make a referral.

I was always sitting at home, until my connector told me about the carers café she set up, now I go out more and meet new friends.
