Accessing Services in the Community

Our teams across the county have a lot of local knowledge and keep up to date with what’s on in the local community.

We are always happy to help and support you to access appropriate services for whatever you need.

Not only do we know about community groups in your area, but we can put you in touch with social groups, such as ‘Happy Thursdays’ or photography groups;  activities where you can meet new people, make new friends and try something different. If that feels a little daunting, we’ll even go along with you!

With strong links to other professional organisations, such as Mental Health Matters, Debt Advice Services and Buddy Schemes, we will always be able to find you a service that can benefit you.

"I have found the sessions to be helpful, informative and educational, delivered in a manner that I would more expect from a well-intentioned friend than a health trainer."
