The Community team

Our Community team brings together our recovery groups and activities, skills and opportunities interventions and pathways, client involvement and volunteering offer across the whole organisation.

This is all to support our clients in their recovery from homelessness and sleeping rough.

Recovery Homelessness Programme:

We offer a programme of groups and activities delivered across all 3 sites where our services are based, which is focused on supporting people in their recovery and moving them towards social and Community integration. These may include gardening, mindfulness, talking groups and creative writing.

Skills & Opportunities:

We provide a pathway of interventions and opportunities to engage people in activities suitable for the stage of their journey. This includes training, volunteering and activities which aim to improve access to work – moving people towards integrating in the Community.

Client Involvement:

This is a range of opportunities for clients to be involved in the design, review and delivery of The Connection’s services. We believe in co-producing our services and listening to our clients’ voice at every stage.

We recognise the value and expertise the people we work with – our clients – can bring to The Connection. This is why we have adopted co-production – including clients in the design, delivery and evaluation of our services – as a fundamental part of our service delivery.
