Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are offering support by telephone, text message and e-mails ONLY! We have suspended all face-to-face contact until further notice.

We are still taking new referrals into the service, so please do get in touch.

 

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

Our client experience

"Lisa is a much happier, confident person now. She is enjoying going out to places with support staff."

"Elizabeth lost just over half a stone while working with myself. This in turn increased her confidence."

"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."

Andy, Ferryhill

"Angela achieved a number of healthy lifestyle changes as well as some significant weight loss."

"I would wholeheartedly recommend the Wellbeing for Life Service to anyone to refocus one’s life in a positive way."

Steve, 46, Seaham
