Alongside this, Connected Southend has the heart of the city embedded within, through our use and support of voluntary and community groups, our arts, culture, leisure and our heritage.Living in Southend is so much more than local identity; it is how we relate to everything around us; our history as much as our future, and our desire to remain within the communities we call home with the people that are important to us.

Bringing together practitioners, commissioners and providers, as well as our wider culture, arts and leisure services, we aim to change the way we support and enable people to live the lives they choose to live.
Connected Southend is underpinned by the core concepts of the Care Act, ensuring community opportunities, citizenship and personalised outcomes and is now core to Southend's Social Services plans for the future.
