Having a healthy social wellbeing is not just about having a packed social calendar. It is about connecting with your community and having a strong support network and good friends. It is about knowing your neighbours and looking out for each other.
Loneliness and social isolation can have a devastating impact on our health and wellbeing. Most of us will experience loneliness at some point in our lives, and almost all of us could be better connected with our community.
Our social wellbeing service is designed to work with people on an individual basis, assessing social interests and goals and linking people with meaningful connections and activities.
I never use to leave my house at all – all of my close family live out of town and I didn’t really have any friends. The social wellbeing team encouraged me to sign up to a free language class offered through the library where not only did I improve my French, but I met a number of people I now call my close friends.
What we offer:
- One-on-one sessions to identify personal interests and goals
- Link people with fun, meaningful activities
- Volunteering opportunities
- Employment support
- A range of workshops and courses
- Befriending programmes
- Peer support services
