Connect Basingstoke

About the Service

Community First has been running the service since September 2015. We recognise how vital the Connect is to those who rely upon it. Our main priority is to maintain the existing excellent quality of these services so that we can help as many people as possible. We are unable to take you to hospital appointments. This service is funded by Hampshire County Council and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
