Connect offers mental health support and guidance due to hardship or a poverty crisis that is affecting your mental wellbeing. We believe anyone facing mental ill health for any reason deserves to be treated fairly and with respect. At Connect we want to provide that extra bit of support ensuring you don’t feel like your facing the problems alone. The connect service is ran in partnership with Cumbria Law centre and citizens advice Carlisle – Eden.

A hardship or poverty crisis can include immediate problems such as issues with money, food, gas/electric, clothes, furniture etc. It can also include wider needs such as housing, welfare, benefits and debt. 

We help to provide a holistic service to people to help them meet their needs and develop a support plan alongside these other agencies if necessary.
