Benefits of staying connected with community groups in villages such as Clent, Belbroughton, Hagley and Romsley

Research shows there is a correlation between social engagement, mental wellbeing and brain health.  Alzheimers Research UK reports a study by the University of Southampton which found that community activity is associated with better cognitive function.  At Home Instead, our quality Companionship Homecare Services are designed to keep people socially and mentally active by assisting with connections to local organisations, such as those below for the Clent area, as well as through engaging activity at home.

Community Groups in Clent for Social Engagement

Clent Connect

Clent Connect is a community hub with café and shop which really cares and provides a fantastic service to the community.  Since starting in March 2023, the hub has grown from strength to strength with an incredible 70 volunteers who aim to create positive change, increase intergenerational socialising and improve mental health, doing everything from delivering meals and serving coffee to litter picking and a chauffeur service.  If you would like to experience the friendly atmosphere, the café is open next door to the parish hall on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.
