Connex Community Support – changing lives for over 35 years

Connex Community Support is a charity dedicated to helping people in need.

We help older people, families, children and young people.  We help them live safer and more fulfilled lives within their communities.

We understand what people need and how to provide it.  Caring is at the heart of what we do and we respect the dignity of the people we support.

We help people to feel less isolated and to retain their independence, we work with people with disabilities and we support carers.  We help people to build skills and confidence through volunteering.  These are just a few of the ways that Connex Community Support can change people’s lives.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Take a look at the video to see what the people we work with have to say.

Connex is still providing many services to vulnerable people in our area, despite the constraints of the current lockdown rules. And where we can’t help, we can often put you in touch with other organisations who can. While many of our services are free, some are charged for – but we keep our charges as low as we can.
