Connecting with your community
Empowering people to take more control over their health and wellbeing prevents the development or escalation of conditions. The benefits are clear: people live a more active and happier life; population health improves and demand for expensive health and social care services reduce.
These are some of the ways we support connections with our communities, and some of the organisations we are closely involved with:
- attend community events and groups;
- provide care and wellbeing options that help you achieve matters to you; and
- signpost community resources that match your interests and needs.
Self help, or peer-to-peer groups enable people to take better control of their health and wellbeing, gain confidence, share support with others, and improve their self-care. This charity provides support and training for groups and professionals, as well as a directory of local groups and support for people wanting to connect with people who have similar health and care needs.
