The Compassionate Communities approach encourages people to support one another in order to reduce isolation and improve the health and well-being of members of their local community.
It is about recognising that care for one another is everyone’s responsibility and empowering people to create supportive environments and networks in which people can connect, contribute and socialise in the heart of their own community.
At Compton we are proud to drive forward the Compassionate Communities approach across Wolverhampton and South Staffordshire. Our Community Development Team work closely with communities to develop and deliver initiatives to support those who are affected by or caring for someone with an incurable or life limiting condition.
There are many ways to get involved, you don’t have to be a patient or be known to an existing service to access Compassionate Communities support.
