What is Wellbeing for Life?
Wellbeing for Life is a service commissioned by Durham County Council and delivered by County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) who have years of knowledge and experience of working and supporting local people across County Durham.
Our service aims to empower you to tell us what’s important to you and to support you to make choices that will benefit you and your life.
Our Wellbeing Practitioners will work with you over eight to twelve sessions to set a health plan, which will include small achievable goals that you would like to achieve. The one to one sessions typically last for one hour and is time for you to focus on yourself and what support you would like from the service:
- Eat healthier / lose weight / gain weight
- Be more active
- Stop Smoking
- Educate you in alcohol and drug awareness
- Access services in your local community
Our Wellbeing Practitioners will work with you in a friendly group session, which typically lasts for one hour- in order to:
- Help you with healthy eating and practical cooking skills
- Be more active
- Improve your mental wellbeing
"Wellbeing is about your health, happiness, opportunities and your overall quality of life"
