New Community Connect vehicle to be a mobile hub for health and wellbeing in the District

Rochford District Council, in collaboration with the Castle Point & Rochford Health and Wellbeing Board, Brentwood's Community Safety Partnership (CSP) and Brentwood's Health and Wellbeing Board, has unveiled a new Community Connect vehicle.

The Community Connect vehicle serves as a mobile hub for residents, giving access to local resources, information and support. Its aim is to connect residents with local services, activities, and support networks, promoting community cohesion, health and wellbeing.

The first outing of our Community Connect Vehicle will be outside The Puzey Family Practice, Southwell House, Back Lane, Rochford, between 10am-12pm on Tuesday 14 May, in support of Mental Health Awareness Week and Dementia Action Week.

During this time, residents can pop along for advice from:

  • Carers Intensive Support Team from Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT)
  • Rochford Primary Care Network Social Prescribers
  • Lady McAdden Nurse
  • Employment Specialists from Job Retention and Individual Placement Support

With a focus on promoting health and wellbeing, as well as initiatives for the cost of living, local community support groups and local activities, the dedicated team aboard the vehicle will provide assistance and guidance tailored to address a diverse array of community needs.

Future dates and locations of the Community Connect Vehicle will be on our website soon at
