Connect and get involved with your local community

Our goal is to strengthen people’s connections with those around them

We were inspired by the Blue Zone model, a study looking at areas of the world where people not only live long lives, but happy and healthy ones.  What do all these have in common, the ability to Connect.

We are sharing a list of Social Activities in the Brandon and Mildenhall area. 

We understand that some might need a bit more support, so we can match you with one of our lovely Volunteer Connectors. Supporting you to join a social group of your choosing for up to 4 weeks to help build your confidence.

Transport can sometimes be a barrier and our Connecting Communities can help. We have recently launched ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ a project to enable people to enjoy a sociable lunch in an accessible way.

We have been running a successful Pen Pal project with Fordham C of E Primary School and 60 of our Befriending clients and we are now in talks with other local schools and organisations regarding intergenerational projects.

If you would like to find out more please contact Laura, our Co-ordinator 01638 608048 laura@thevoluntarynetwork.org

I would be practically housebound as I am 87 years old, unable to walk too far. I just could not manage without the wonderful kind drivers. Nothing is too much trouble. I hate to think about life without Dial a Ride.
