Support available via PAVO Community Connector Service
Posted on 14 Apr 2020
The Community Connector service has extended its opening hours during Covid-19. We are now open Monday to Friday 9am to 10pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Referrals can be made via 01597828649 or email email@example.com.
We have linked in with various Covid-19 informal volunteer groups across Powys and can connect people to those if it is appropriate. We are also supporting people in the collection and delivery of their prescriptions, either by connecting people to a local organisation (eg Builth Community Support) or using PAVOs formal Health and Care Volunteers.
We also have a Powys Befriending Service. They are providing telephone befriending and have capacity to support people with a regular phone call. Referrals can be made via 01597822191
Here is a link to the PAVO Mental Health information. Again they have a phone service and can be reached during office hours on 01686 628300 or visit https://www.powysmentalhealth.org.uk/home.html for more information.
