Connect Well East Kent
Connect Well East Kent is a Social Prescribing platform managed by Social Enterprise Kent for the East Kent area.
Social prescribing is a way to help people make positive changes in their lives and within their communities by linking them to voluntary and community groups and other non-clinical services.
Social Enterprise Kent is working with voluntary and community sector organisations across the East Kent area to provide access to services via this social prescribing tool that enables trained professionals to refer individuals to non-medical support to maximise social, emotional and practical wellbeing. This will in turn allow them to:
- Feel more involved in the community
- Meet new people
- Make some changes to improve health and wellbeing
Kent Sheds is growing network of like minded people (Men and Women) of all ages, who take part in practical actives (such as wood work), in informal spaces with friends.
