Many things affect our health and wellbeing, such as where we live, how we spend our time, our financial situation and our relationships with friends and family.

Sometimes, we need a bit of help, for example, when coping with a short or long term health situation, or when life throws other challenges our way.

There are people in the community who may be able to offer support guidance during these times. These people are called Community Connectors and are part of a county wide service that is open to anyone over the age of 16 years. 

CCP is one of a number of Community Connector providers in Gloucestershire. We offer the service in the Cheltenham and Tewkesbury areas.

To get in touch with your local Community Connector in Cheltenham or Tewkesbury, simply call us on 0300 365 64 63 or CLICK HERE to submit an online enquiry

The Community Connector will offer a face-to-face, person-centred service. Out role is to listen to you, find out where your interests lie, what your strengths are and what would help you to meet the challenges you face. This may lead to some one-to-one support, connection with others in your community or an introduction to a group or organisation. Community Connectors have an extensive knowledge about groups and activities that are locally available.

What we offer

Community Connectors is a free and confidential service for people aged 16 and above.  Our aim is to connect you to local services, organisations and groups that can help improve your general wellbeing and meet your wider social needs.  We can cover areas such as:

  • Mental health and wellbeing

  • General health and fitness
  • Social isolation
  • Housing and environment
  • Debt and finance

     

We can help you find activities in your local area, help you meet more people in your community or simply provide you with information to help you make an informed choice.
