We know how important it is for people to be able to connect to their community, even at difficult times. We also know that loneliness and isolation can have a detrimental effect on both mental and physical wellbeing. So while in our Hospice we are concerned with how we deliver services, our Compassionate Communities agenda is focused on how we work alongside people in our community to create social networks of care.
Our vision is that everyone in our community who is either living with advanced ill health, is caring for someone with a life limiting illness or who is bereaved feels that they can connect and be both accepted and supported at a difficult time. Check out our projects and stories that demonstrate how people in Hastings and Rother care for each other – and get in touch if you have a great idea!
