Wellbeing

We all need to take care of our wellbeing, especially when we feel stressed or overwhelmed. These are the times when we need to put ourselves first. Your Way to Wellness can help you to focus on personal health and wellbeing. Our keyworkers give guidance to help you find activities where you can feel healthier, meet new people and make a difference to the community. We can also help with finding work or support for housing and benefits issues.

To find out more, read our leaflet or contact our keyworker Marion Lloyd on 01453 548530.

I went to the doctor’s to get a letter about me not driving any more, and me still wanting to. The GP said, “I’ve got a man who can help you with that and more,” and since then he has helped me with so many things. I don’t know what I would have done. I have my driving licence sorted, I have got help with caring for my husband and I even have a new circle of friends.
