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 some extra support, 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 and advice to guide you 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

The Community Connector will have a conversation with you about what matters to you, where your interests lie, what your strengths are and what would help 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.

Who can we help?

The Community Connector service can be helpful:

  • In times of change, for example after redundancy, health issues or retirement
  • In times of emotional hardship, such as after a bereavement
  • If you are worried about debt or financial issues
  • If you don't know where to turn for support
  • If you would like to volunteer in your community
Referrals can be made by directly by individuals and through GP surgeries and ICTs in Cheltenham and Tewkesbury.
