Red Zebra Community Solutions is a local infrastructure organisation, working with residents and organisations to improve opportunities and services for people in the community. Red Zebra is working in partnership with Encompass, the local Multi-speciality Community Provider (MCP) of health and social care services in the Canterbury CCG area (Faversham, Whitstable, Canterbury, Sandwich and Ash) to deliver a social prescribing service. Social prescribing is a way to help people make positive changes in their lives and within their communities by linking them to voluntary and community groups and other non-clinical services. Connect Well helps people to:
- Feel more involved in the community
- Meet new people
- Make changes to improve health and wellbeing
Connect Well Kent uses a web-based tool that enables professionals to refer clients to a range of local, non-medical support to maximise social, emotional or practical wellbeing; individuals can also find out about local activities and services through browsing the site themselves. Their database currently holds over 300 activity / service listings for the CCG area and this is ever expanding.
Our parish church is putting an entry into the above directory so people can see what we offer through our ministries and services. Contact: https://connectwellkent.org.uk/
