Are you seeking support for an ongoing health condition? Do you know someone experiencing an ongoing health issue? Connect someone you know with care to support their health condition.

Direct them to Care Coordination Services at Footprints Community.

The Care Coordination Service links people with organisations and health services to manage their health and improve their overall wellbeing. Sometimes people don’t know what’s available and the program provides a way forward to improve physical, emotional and mental health and build social connections. CCS can act as a pathway to good health and happiness.

You are an important service.
You have been the encouraging support and kick I needed to get the gumption to get the medical help I need. If I don’t have someone to push me, I won’t do it because I’m scared of the outcome. The service you provide is fantastic and couldn’t have come at a better time. I was falling through the medical cracks and you have supported me.
