We strongly believe that community connecting is fundamental and a substantial part of having a better-quality life. Individuals that are familiar with their local community can access social groups, clubs, leisure activities, and have every opportunity to meet new people and feel more united. This will ensure that isolation is prevented and that meaningful relationships are developed, ensuring a sense of belonging and social connectedness.
It essential that the individual is supported with the process of identifying what is available because this will provide an element of certainty and safety. This can involve doing some research on what is available in the local area and presenting it in an individualised way that is easy to understand and process.
