Community First's Help and Support Directory is an easy to use directory of local community services. It has been created to help people connect with support services and community groups where they live.
During COVID-19 it is more important than ever that CVS’ keep in touch with their member organisations and their service users too. In response to the traditional face to face health forums being suspended, Community First and Gosport Voluntary Action (GVA) have worked collaboratively to produce a new, bi-monthly, ‘Fareham & Gosport Voluntary Sector Health Forum Newsletter’ – to keep Health Forum members and other interested parties up-to-date with relevant health and wellbeing information. It’s also an excellent opportunity for both to engage with their local health organisations in a new way, offering additional support to those who need it during this particularly challenging and potentially isolating period. Recipients can also highlight any local gaps in services – for Community First & GVA to then raise &/or hopefully respond to.
The Newsletter contains a wealth of useful health and wellbeing information and updates – from highlighting the Hants & IoW Social Prescribing Network’s ‘Understanding Hampshire’s Changing Health Structures’ Q&A Webinar on 16 July, to information about affordable PPE, HCC’s Adults’ Health & Care updates for care providers, COVID-19 & health-related surveys, Mental Health Services, Healthwatch Hampshire, Hydration at Home Toolkit, Free Healthy Conversation Skills Online Training, Citizens Advice Hampshire’s Home & Well Project, GVA’s Surgery Signposting & Age Concern Gosport’s new triage service, COVID-19 funding opportunities, The Bereavement Centre and also, demonstrating the scale of the local need and the impact of GVA & Community First’s Community Response.
