OLDER people and people with learning disabilities along with organisations who support them in Huddersfield are being urged to join a new scheme.
Connect to Support is a project launched in Huddersfield, organised by Kirklees Council and brings together more than 20 local organisations that support older people and people with learning disabilities in Kirklees.
The project held an event which had news of the launch of a new website called ‘Connectto Support’ in the new year.
The website will help people access the support they need all in one place, by visiting a ‘shop’ online, where they can view care services, leisure services and other activities that promote health and well-being.
Clr Molly Walton, joint Kirklees Council Cabinet member for adult social care said: “We are promoting the benefits of Connect to Support to health and social care organisations across the district.”
