how does it work

darryl and david

Let's Connect has a team of volunteer Community Connectors who meet with people to discuss their interests and encourage them to take part in community activities of their choice.

Community Connectors can offer support to make those initial contacts or can signpost to clubs and activities in the local area. We can also buddy-up people living in the same area, based on shared interests.

The project works in close partnership with other groups and initiatives across the Borough that tackle social isolation and loneliness. give back

We're keen to hear from anyone who:

• Knows someone who may be lonely or socially isolated

• Wants to volunteer a few hours as a Community Connector to support people out of loneliness

• Organises local social, cultural or health promotion activities
