ConnectWELL signposting for specialist services
This could be through various leisure, health or welfare activities and services.
As a signposting provision, they provide expertise on pointing users in the direction of the specialist service they require.
They provide information on support for debt and housing, to sport, art and craft and self-help services.
Should a user be anxious about attending, they have a Health Buddy service also available. A member of the team will attend the group or activity with the user, and over a period of time withdraw support to encourage independence.
