Community Connections is a preventative social prescribing project, aiming to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable adults across the borough.

Community Connections supports vulnerable adults in Lewisham in two ways: a combination of community development work and individual community facilitation for vulnerable adults.

Community Facilitators work with clients one-to-one on a time-limited basis around accessing community groups and services. Facilitators use a person-centred approach to encourage clients to identify and access community-based services and activities that meet their needs.

Community Development Workers work with community groups to build and sustain the community’s ability to support vulnerable adults. Development Workers support organisations looking to develop new services, build capacity, and give guidance and support to groups looking for funding. They also work with a number of borough-wide networks helping to build partnerships and resilience within the community sector.
