What they aim to achieve

  • To contribute to improving the health and wider well-being of Salford people through use of person and community centred approaches.

  • To help reduce demand on areas of health care provision, such as GP practices and hospitals.

What they do

Community Connectors are based in the heart of your community and will work with you to improve your health and wellbeing by connecting you to activities, services and organisations in your community. A Community Connector will meet with you, listen to you and find out what matters to you most.

A Community Connector works at your own pace, offering you support to identify where you want to be.
 
Plans are developed together and tailored to your individual needs in line with what is available within or near to your neighbourhood.
 
Together we will identify any barriers that you may feel would affect you in achieving your goal / action.
 
Your Community Connector is linked into the broader programme of work which includes work around the development and sustainability of the voluntary,community and social enterprise (VSCE) sector.
 
You can refer yourself through the Care Navigator or a member of staff at your GP practice.
