“NCHA Bassetlaw Connect” is a service provided by Nottingham Community Housing Association and is based in Shireoaks. The service provides short term support for people thought to be at risk of deteriorating health and independence within the Bassetlaw area.
We will in the first instance refer, signpost or introduce people to community resources. We will then aim to find a way to resolve the needs and to that end we offer a two tier service:
- Brief intervention: Up to two visits/contacts made. This tier of intervention will be open to anyone presenting a need for the service who is thought to be at risk of deteriorating health and independence as a result of age, mobility, disability, long term health conditions or bereavement. The aim of this service tier is to provide quick and simple early intervention solutions covering a wide range of issues, whilst assessing if there are more complex needs and address those accordingly.
- Short term support: Where Service Users’ needs cannot be met through a brief intervention, i.e the needs are too complex or require a more sustained period of work, a short term support service will be provided.
We have a single point of access for our referrals, the contact phone number is 0115 844 3541 and our email address is NCHABassetlawConnect@ncha.org.uk.
We have attached, within this email, our current promotional material with a poster detailing our” DropIn Centres” at Worksop and Retford. It would be appreciated if this poster could be printed off and placed on any Village Notice Board you may have within your Parish. If this is possible we would greatly appreciate confirmation via return email.
