Community connections

Connecting with your community

Connecting with your community improves health and wellbeing. That’s why PICS is embedded in the communities our staff work in. We support the set up, development and sustainability of community groups, assets and activities because they are proven to help individuals to improve their own health and wellbeing.

Empowering people to take more control over their health and wellbeing prevents the development or escalation of conditions. The benefits are clear: people live a more active and happier life; population health improves and demand for expensive health and social care services reduce.

These are some of the ways we support connections with our communities, and some of the organisations we are closely involved with:

  • attend community events and groups;
  • provide care and wellbeing options that help you achieve matters to you; and
  • signpost community resources that match your interests and needs.

Self Help UK

Self help, or peer-to-peer groups enable people to take better control of their health and wellbeing, gain confidence, share support with others, and improve their self-care. This charity provides support and training for groups and professionals, as well as a directory of local groups and support for people wanting to connect with people who have similar health and care needs.

Health and wellbeing hubs

Health and wellbeing hubs offer free services and support and visit neighbourhoods across Nottinghamshire all year round. Come along to find out about vaccinations and how to keep healthy, advice on making your money go further; finding and using your local health services, and improving your wellbeing by spending time with others.
