Opportunity Description:

Community Connectors Training is an initial session designed to help you learn how to help others by “signposting” them to information. You will become better equipped to direct friends, family, and neighbours to support in your community that might help improve their health or wellbeing. Why does this matter? Having weak social connections carries health risks. Tackling loneliness and social isolation is the real focus of our project. Connectors have the power to make a huge difference in our community.
