MESSAGES FROM YOUR PARISH COUNCIL
My name is Katie and I am your local Community Connector for a new social prescribing service called Connected Communities. Connected Communities works in various areas of rural east Suffolk. Our role is to work with anyone over the age of 65 in these areas to consider what matters to them and link them to local services which could improve their health and wellbeing. Our primary focus is on supporting those who are isolated or lonely however we will work to support those with a range of life issues. We use health coaching conversations to get to know the individual and find out what matters to them and what they would like to change to make them feel more fulfilled and happier. We then come up with a plan with them and link them to the right support. Ordinarily we would meet face to face but at this time we are offering telephone support and assessing if socially distance meet ups would be appropriate. We also have our very own mobile home called “Vincent Van Go” Vincent travels around rural areas so we can get to those who really need us but also offers a safe space to talk. We are currently looking at covid safe ways of utilizing “Vincent Van Go”.
