In its first five months, the Help Centre delivered over 200,000 visits from members of the public seeking advice and information on a range of community policing issues, including crime prevention, traffic issues and much more.

Jo Ball, 101 Contact Centre Manager, said:  “The online Help Centre was our first attempt to create a digital non-emergency helpline service for people in Sussex.  This has helped Sussex Police to deliver policing advice to more people in Sussex at less cost.  Connect Assist helped us take important steps in our digital journey”

Case Study

NHS Plus - Health 4 Work Adviceline

Since August 2012 we have delivered the free Health for Work Adviceline which is funded by the Department of Work and Pensions. The service provides small businesses with the expert advice and support they need to help team members experiencing ill health and other occupational health issues. The Health for Work Adviceline had a requirement to cut costs, develop a sustainable funding model whilst delivering a high quality service to those who often feel unable to obtain professional occupational health advice due to the smaller size of their business.
