Neighbourhood Connections is a community project that aims to help people live happy, healthy and independent lives in Horsley.

- Are you feeling isolated or lonely?
- Would you like to know more about local activities?
- Do you have concerns about someone you know or care for?

You may have had a change in your health or mobility which is affecting you and would like to know more about what services can help you to manage and adapt.
You may be a mum who has moved into the area, looking to develop your own social network or find additional activities for your family.
You may be a carer for your partner or a family member and would like some extra support in your caring role.
You may be recently retired and looking to begin a new hobby.
Whatever your situation, Neighbourhood Connections’ trained volunteers can provide a listening ear, information and advice about local support and activities, such as local transport, groups, household help, statutory services and more.
The volunteers may also be able to offer short-term support to help you access services in the community, such as accompanying you to a new activity, or contacting professionals on your behalf.
Please note that although based at the medical practice, Neighbourhood Connections is not a medical service; it’s a way to address social and practical needs and to help make connections between you and support services that may be relevant to you.
