Welcome to Simply Connect Northumberland

We're on a mission to improve access to community services and help people to find local support services and activities that can help improve their health and wellbeing. 

This directory is managed by our local partner, Northumberland CVA, and lists the services, groups and activities of local VCSE organisations. 

Whatever it is you're looking for - there's something for you.

Maybe you’re wanting to meet new people - or need some advice for a friend or family member? Or perhaps you want to find out about exercise or social clubs in your area, or how to get involved in a local charity?

Community services can provide specialist support on a range of topics, such domestic abuse, helping to manage your finances, housing issues or bereavement support.

Simply browse the site, or use the search tools to find what you're looking for

You can find details of local services and support, share information with friends and family, or bookmark and print out service information.

What is social prescribing?

This is when you are referred or signposted into non-clinical services by a professional as a way of supporting or improving your health and wellbeing.

Social Prescribing Link Workers are new posts, funded by the NHS, who will support you and make referrals on your behalf into community services.

Do you want to get involved in your community and help others?

There are hundreds of local community organisations registered that you can help by volunteering.

Maybe you want to work with animals, help the homeless, or get involved in a fundraising event - whatever it is, there is someone out there who needs your help.
