Community Connections Directory 2022 out now
PR2483/CF/MF - 05/12/2022
Mid Sussex District Council has published a new and updated edition of the Community Connections Directory to help older residents get access to vital support services.
The new Community Connections Directory contains extensive contact information for the many local organisations that offer help to older people in the community. It provides details of organisations that can help older people with a range of issues like managing money, maintaining independence, finding local social activities, or getting support with housing issues.
Copies are available now from the Mid Sussex District Council offices, Help Points in Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, and Haywards Heath, in local libraries and in doctor’s surgeries throughout Mid Sussex. An online edition is also available at www.community-connections.org.uk/.
Councillor Norman Webster, Cabinet Member for Community said:
“We’re really lucky to have a wide range of support organisations in Mid Sussex that are dedicated to helping older people.
“The Mid Sussex Community Connections Directory brings all their details together in one place, so older people can find the health, social, transport, housing, and financial support they need.
“Our local support organisations provide so many wonderful services like home visits, financial advice, meals on wheels, counselling, transport, bereavement support, wheelchair loans, social activities and much more. The directory has a list of local support organisations, along with a brief explanation of the services they provide, and the contact details you need to get in touch with them.
“If you’re an older person who needs a helping hand or you know of someone in the community who could benefit from some extra support then please pick up a copy of our Community Connections Directory.”
The Directory forms part of the Mid Sussex Wellbeing Hub, a comprehensive service providing residents with information and advice on health and lifestyle matters.
