Uttlesford Frontline, a local community initiative initially targeted at health professionals, has proved to be so successful that it has been funded by West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and Essex County Council to enable the public to benefit from the service.
For people who are worried about a friend or family member, or need help themselves, it’s important to be able to find out what support is available locally – however unless they know a service exists it can be difficult to know where to start looking. By visiting www.uttlesfordfrontline.org.uk and searching under a particular section, such as older people, families or mental health, a user can easily find out which organisations are offering relevant services within the local area and even request a call back from many of the services. The system also allows people to comment on a service or chat with someone if they can’t find what they need.
