The health and care directory has a new identity, logo and some new features. The new name is Staffordshire Connects and the web address is www.staffordshireconnects.info. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The purpose of the directory is to provide citizens with information about activities, groups and organisations that can help them to stay independent and well. This includes information about home care providers, carers groups, leisure services, support groups, equipment and technology providers.
Staffordshire Connects also acts as a central information resource for our health and social care professionals, partner organisations and the voluntary sector. Organisations like Support Staffordshire are working with us to ensure the many VCSE organisations that they support are also added on.
As well as being a directory, Staffordshire Connects also provides access to:
- A health and wellbeing planner. The planner provides self-help information, advice and guidance on leading a healthier lifestyle. The short link for the health and wellbeing tool is www.staffordshireconnects.info/plan
- An equipment and technology product showroom – browse, search and compare different products that can make daily life that little bit easier
- A social care self-assessment tool where by you can assess care needs and get some useful information, advice and guidance along the way
- The local offer which is about the provision of support for children and families with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
There are clear links to the directory from the adult social pages on the www.staffordshire.gov.uk website, and more links will be added to our partner websites shortly.
