Connecting Communities

Apologies if you are already aware of us but I just wanted to take some time to introduce myself to you. My name is Katie and I am the Community Connector for the Wickham Market area for a new social prescribing service called Connecting Communities. Connected Communities works with those over 65 who may be feeling lonely or isolated or who are dealing with difficulties in life such as bereavement, separation, low mood, long term health conditions, money problems or housing concerns. Our role is to spend time to get to know the individual and find out what matters to them and what they would like to change. We then work with them to come up with a plan and connect them to people or groups in their community who can help.

We know that this winter may be more challenging than most and we really just want to make people aware that we are here and can help. People can self-refer to us directly or can be referred by a third party with permission. Referrals can be made by calling 01473 835477 or emailing

It would be lovely to have a conversation with you about the work we do if you are available any time.
