We would love to invite you to attend our FREE, FUN and FRIENDLY upcoming Connectors Health Information Sessions at The Makerspace in Bognor. The Community Connectors team at The Makerspace is a partnership with VAAC and made up of Makerspace members.

Our monthly programme will be run by our wonderful volunteer Community Connectors – Kate, Tina, Howard. Their role as connectors is to chat and engage with you about health issues and they will offer support and signposting to any information you require to access the health interventions that exist locally.

Each session will be relaxed, fun, informative and will take place between 12 – 2.00 pm.

Each session will involve food! Yes, we will be offering refreshments and a light lunch, so please come along and join us. Each session will be facilitated by Connectors and a local health expert who will chat to you about the topic, answer questions and make suggestions that could improve your health. Rest assured no one will be put on the spot, or expected to talk about anything personal to do with your health
