Connected Communities Centres

Community venues across Cheshire East are changing to Connected Communities Centres in a scheme to make a wider range of activities and support services available on your doorstep. The centres’ aim to deliver services tailored for their community, from coffee mornings, computer classes and line dancing, to learning a language, sharing a problem and support for stroke sufferers – there’s something for everyone. Every centre will have a computer tablet connected to our Live Well community information website so you can easily find information, advice, activities and services in your area.

Venues are nominated to become Connected Communities Centres by their local Neighbourhood Partnership. If a venue is interested in being nominated, contact the Connected Communities Team on 01270 685880 or attend their local Neighbourhood Partnership Meeting.
