CANConnect and Redwings – combating loneliness and social isolation – 18th December

Our CANConnect service, working in partnership with Future Projects, operates throughout the former North Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group area.  CANConnect has worked regularly with Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Aylsham in offering social events aimed at bringing together people from across the area who are experiencing loneliness and social isolation.

Hanworth Memorial Hall - and keeping your eggs in separate baskets…

At CAN we help and support a great many community projects to find the funding they need to make their vision a reality. Finding the right funder can be a minefield, and a complex process that takes time and commitment.  

The man who talked to chairs – social isolation during the pandemic

The clocks ‘went back’ on 25th October. The following week saw the highest recorded levels of extreme loneliness since the first lockdown began in March. 

Free energy training for frontline staff and volunteers: fuel poverty and energy bills

With the new lockdown now in place, more people will be having to stay at home and turn on their heating – if they can afford to. Now more than ever it’s important to raise awareness to vulnerable consumers of how to stay warm, how to use less energy, and how to pay less.  Are your staff and volunteers aware of the support available?  CAN is offering free online training to help frontline workers provide support and information where needed.

The Campaign for Mental Health in North Norfolk

Community Action Norfolk are sharing this from The Campaign for Mental Health in North Norfolk, please contact them directly with any queries. 

We, the Campaign for Mental Health Services in North Norfolk, are very aware of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on people's mental health. We want to hear from you - your personal stories and experiences of mental health distress in your daily life. The shortage of appropriate Mental Health Services to turn to when we need help to deal with the Covid-19 situation has been severely highlighted during this period.

Heating oil, fuel poverty… and a request

Many Norfolk households and businesses in off-gas areas are burdened with the added element of the unregulated prices of heating oil. A few weeks ago we asked for your help in raising awareness of ThinkingFuel, our collective heating oil buying scheme. And we’d like to say a big thank you to those of who have published the article we supplied or have shared posters and flyers. If you haven’t already shared the message, we should be most grateful if you would. Details of how you can help can be found below.
