Park Wood Connects Project

Courtesy of the National Lottery Community Fund Fusion Maidstone are able to launch their Park Wood Connects project which is a three year engagement and support initiative co-designed with the local community to support people struggling with the combined effects of the cost-of-living crisis, the mental health crisis, and high levels of social isolation/loneliness in one of the South East’s most deprived communities.  To address the growing numbers of vulnerable local residents we propose to do two things through the Park Wood Connects project:

  • Reach out better across the community to make more people aware that we and our partners are here to help.

  • Make more services available locally by encouraging more people and organisations to begin delivering support locally.
