We’re back and raring to go!

The Wellbeing for Life Team is taking new referrals and we’re here to help you!

Although we currently aren’t able to see clients face-to-face, we are able to provide support over the phone, via email or video call. Up to 12 sessions of free, confidential 1:1 support with additional information posted out or e-mailed directly to you.

Help control the Coronavirus

To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

wash hands – keep washing your hands regularly

cover face – wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces

make space – stay at least a metre away from people not in your household

If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

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
