Community Connectors (Moray Wellbeing Hub)

Community Connectors at the Moray Wellbeing Hub are Hub Champions that spare a few hours a month to support fellow peers of life challenges in their local areas. The role is mutual, supporting someone with a shared interest or activity to promote wellbeing to both individuals, by instilling a sense of meaning and purpose to progress in life.

It is not a 'service’, it is that one person supports another to engage and connect in their local community and receives that support in return by the other Community Connector they are supporting.

As with all Champions of Moray Wellbeing Hub, Community Connectors share peer-values such as mutuality, intentionality and authenticity and make sure to take personal responsibility to opt out of the project at any time.

Community Connectors go through the provided orientation training along with PVG check (Protection of Vulnerable Groups). Community Connectors are covered under insurance and are provided with support by a local supervisor.
