Connect Well Mid Essex Partners

Connect Well Essex is the first social prescribing referral tool to launch as part of a roll out of schemes brought together under the national network Connect for Wellbeing.

Connect Well Mid Essex was initiated by a multi-agency partnership board called Living Safe and Well who began work on a social prescribing project in Summer 2014. In February 2015 a project manager was appointed and began building relationships with a wide variety of partners to co-produce what would work well in the area. The Board were able to draw on the experiences and expertise of CCVS (My Social Prescription) and Voluntary Action Sheffield (VCConnect) in developing a local solution for Mid Essex.

Connect Well is a whole community initiative and we would like to thank the following agencies and individuals, who have contributed in so many ways, for their investment of time, skills and resources. Extra special thanks go to Essex County Council Public Health for funding the development and ongoing support of Connect Well.
