Helping you live a fulfilled and independent life in your own home
NCHA Bassetlaw Connect is a free service offering support, help and advice to anyone who may be feeling isolated, lonely or vulnerable in their own home.

The aim of the service is to link people with their local communities, to find solutions that are personal to your needs, and provide support to help you maintain a healthy and independent life.

How will you support me?

We will visit you within the first week of receiving your enquiry to talk to you about how you are feeling, and how you would like your life to improve. We recognise that everyone is different and will tailor the support to your individual needs.

We will work with you to find solutions that take into account your needs and requirements, while considering your existing skills that may be a platform for you to learn new ways to do things.

One of our aims will be to work with you to build connections with people and organisations around you who may be able to better support you to live independently.
Following this, we may continue to support you for up to 12 weeks, either face-to-face or via a SMaRT Messenger communication system.

What is SMaRT Messenger?

If we think it will help you, we will install a SMaRT Messenger system into your home. This is a small set-top box  that connects to your television and allows your support worker, friends and family to send you reminders, information and text messages directly to your TV. It's really easy to use, and won't interfere with your normal viewing.

How do I access the service?

If you think you could benefit from Connect, you can contact us on the details above to arrange a free home visit.
Alternatively, you can be referred to us via any other support agency who recognises that you may need our help.
