Do you want to become a Community Connector?

Project Smith

Community Connectors

Community Connectors are local residents, who link others in their local community with activities and organisations that can help improve their quality of life. This can include linking people up with wellbeing and health services, local community groups and organisations, social groups and activities that can have a positive impact on their life.

Community Connectors are given training and support to give them the skills needed to be able to talk to people about wellbeing, the things that they can do for themselves, and places to go to access help and support doing this.

This ability to link people with services, and services with people will help create connections that could provide a safety net of social support to help people feel better about their wellbeing and where they live.

The next training course starts on 17th May. For more information see
