Event description

Description

Making Connections Walsall is part of the Walsall Together Healthy Resilient Communities work stream being introduced to tackle the loneliness and social isolation of older people, improve their wellbeing and reduce preventable health service and social care usage. It will do this by connecting older people to others within their local communities including: voluntary sector organisations and groups.

Making Connections Walsall Programme is a FREE Service and will provide service users, GPs, Health & Social Care professionals, carers, housing and other partners with one route of referral into community social support to address loneliness and social isolation. MCW will provide a link between health services, social care and service users with non-medical support within the community.

Come along and find out more about how Making Connections Walsall can support your service/ organisation to meet the social needs of lonely and socially isolated older residents of Walsall. The event will provide you with an opportunity to join the Walsall Making Connections Network and to sign up to receive referrals from the Service.

We hope you will be able to join us.

  • What is Making Connection Walsall
