Staying Connected during
We’ve been thinking really hard about how we can reach out to you, our community members, and help you stay socially connected during this time.
Here are a few initiatives that we’ve come up with that are available to you right now for free:
At times like this it’s so important to spend time with your family and friends, even if it can’t be face to face. There are a lot of great technology options and apps out there that can help us stay connected with our loved ones, but they can be tricky to figure out if you haven’t used them before.
If you’d like help setting up and navigating apps or using your devices, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re not IT specialists, just “tech-savvy” people who are happy to help.
A lot of people come to Epsom Community Centre for social connection and interaction and we want to do the best we can to make sure you’re getting that during this time. We are offering free Check Ins where we’ll get in touch with you for a chat, see how you are, make sure you’re okay and essentially, Check In.
If you sign up to this free service, just let us know what kind of check in you’d like (eg. email, text, phone-call, video-call etc) and how frequently you’d like it (daily, twice a week, weekly etc) and we will be in touch with you. To sign up, email email@example.com.

Social connection is so important for our mental health and wellbeing and is one of the things we really focus on but self-isolation means we need to do this a little differently. This is one of our new initiatives to continue to bring our community together and stay connected.
We can't wait to see you there!
