A free, person-centred, confidential service for persons and families across Pembrokeshire has recently been launched. Community Connectors will support people to take positive steps to improve their health and well-being and help them to enjoy life within their communities. Community Connectors are a 2 Year programme delivered by the Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services working with the county council and health board.
They will offer information on local services and activities to suit individuals and widen their social networks. Four Community Connectors will work in communities across the county and liaise with GP clusters and other preventative services. Neyland Town Council recently offered free office accommodation to the local Community Connector covering the town in a spirit of partnership working and enhancing services for local people. The Mayor of Neyland, Dr Simon Hancock said ‘we warmly welcome a Community Connector to work in Neyland and district working with statutory and voluntary services and afford them every possible facility to enhance their excellent and invaluable work.’
