Keeping people connected
During Coronavirus the Sunderland People First team have been working to help people in Sunderland with a learning disability, autistic people and their families to use different ways to stay connected.
They have been using a programme called Zoom to connect with people and share things that they think may help. Their Zoom calls are about learning and sharing together and getting to know each other.
This has included:
- Online Quizzes and other fun things.
- Staying positive and sharing news. Understanding information and local updates.
- Community safety and knowing what to do if you're worried.
- Linking people with training opportunities and signposting support and advice.
If you would like to join their Keeping People Connected community Zoom calls, please check out their flyer by clicking on the pink link below.
Sunderland People First would like to express their gratitude to Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group for providing funding to continue this important work of supporting the community through their Keeping People Connected Service.
