Kingston Carers' Network is now listed on Connected Kingston, a new website where Kingston residents can find local services to help them feel more involved in their community, meet new people and make some changes to improve their health and wellbeing.
There are a wide range of services on Connected Kingston including social and leisure activities, self-help groups, lunch clubs, practical and emotional support and more. There is sure to be something that will be useful or of interest, to everyone.
As well as finding information about local services, residents can be ‘referred’ through the system. This means that they highlight their interest in a service, and the service will follow up and contact them to discuss how they can get involved.
Residents will be able to use the system alone and refer themselves, however, Connected Kingston will also be training local workers in statutory services and community groups to be able to support people to use the system. These people will be called Connected Kingston Champions and will be based in places such as libraries, leisure centres, pharmacies, housing services, community centres, GP offices and other community locations and organisations.
