The Service helps people in Powys (aged 18+) and their families or carers, to access community-level services and activities that will help them maintain independent lives and which help prevent their circumstances deteriorating to a point where they might need higher level health or social care services.
The service can also help support people when they return to home from hospital by helping other Third Sector services, such as Red Cross, identify additional local services that may be needed.
The Community Health and Well-Being Coordination Service covers the whole of Powys. However, not all areas of Powys currently have a Community Connector based in them. Referrals or enquiries for people in those community areas without a local Community Connector are handled by Community Connectors operating via Powys People Direct.
