Life is about making connections which happen through a conversation with people we meet in daily life. A casual comment can lead to the discovery of new opportunities and connections.
Across Kapiti a network of Community Connectors is being set up in everyday places. This is an important part of AgeConnect Kapiti.
Community Connectors will be based in local businesses and support the aims of AgeConnect Kapiti to help older people access information that enables them to stay connected and involved. They will be familiar with the AgeConnect Kapiti website and flyer which signpost what is available and where to find further information.
To help us establish this initiative, we have invited a cross section of businesses in Waikanae to take part in a pilot. This will take place during July/August 2020 after which other businesses throughout Kapiti will be invited to join the Community Connectors network.
