City Connections is a programme of services which links people to health and wellbeing services within the Square Mile. They may live or work in the City, are over 18 or a young carer, and would like help to understand what services would suit their needs and how to access them.
The main areas of service delivery include the following:
- The City Connections Carers Service is for unpaid carers and young carer’s resident or working in the City of London.
- The City Connections Memory Group is a friendly, informal group for people who are concerned about their memory, are already having memory issues or have a diagnosis of dementia.
- City Care Navigation which aims to assistance patients and carers in identifying and accessing the systems and support that are available to them within health and social care and beyond. They support people to make positive choices to promote good health and emotional wellbeing and can often provide a non-medical referral option that can support existing medical treatments for patients.
