Community Groups and Activities
How to find information about social groups, organisations and activities in your local area.
Between 2012 and 2016 Social Services ran a Community Connection Project to help prevent people becoming socially isolated. A team of Community Connectors provided information and contacts for a wide range of organisations and activities and played a role in developing community projects and initiatives which created social opportunities and promoted wellbeing. This project has now ended.
Information and advice regarding community and social activities will continue to be available from:
Social Services Intake Team for Health and Social Care for general advice and information about community organisations, groups and social activities.
