Launching Connect 3 - A housing focused mental health service
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new and innovative housing focused mental health service which we will be delivering in partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association.
Connect 3 is a bespoke service which is designed according to the client's needs. There are three core elements that individuals can access and move between as necessary.
The three key services are:
Staff will work with people on a one to one or group basis to help them engage in activity that will improve their health and fitness, help them to develop the practical skills they need to manage their financial responsibilities and tenancy and also help them develop social skills and access new networks and interests.
