Harrow Mencap's Connecting Communities supports people from Hillingdon, Harrow, and Brent.
The scheme aims to reduce loneliness throughout the three boroughs by offering events, social activities, and volunteering opportunities. Many participants have built new friendships, relationships and even found jobs since joining the programme.
Activities are open to the whole community; they have brought together a diverse group of participants and volunteers including people with learning disabilities, physically disabled people, those with additional mental health needs, and older people.
