The Community Connectors is one of two programmes in Project Smith, an NHS funded community development programme. The Community Connectors training programme and network is for Lambeth residents who are active in their community or would like to be active in their community. If you are interested in joining, or if any of the people you work with are interested in joining, please respond email.
About the Community Connector programme:
Community Connectors are local people who link others in their local community with activities and organisations that can help improve their quality of life. Lots of people in Lambeth do this naturally on a daily basis in unpaid capacities with no training or formal support, while others do it as part of a structured volunteering role in local community organisations.
Project Smith offers the Community Connector training and support to give these people the skills needed to be better able to talk to other people about wellbeing, the things that they can do for themselves, and places to go to access help and support doing this. After the training we go on ‘Safari’ and visit a different community, health or wellbeing organisation in Lambeth to help you learn about what there is in the area in order to help you signpost people to them.
The dates for the next Community Connector training programme are below. Two days on the training are dedicated to the Royal Society Level 2 Qualification in Supporting Behaviour Change, which is the qualification you can receive as part of your training. All training days run from 9.30am – 3pm and you need to attend all 4 days to become a Community Connector.
