Social Prescribing

Live Well Link Well
Are you looking to make changes to improve your social, physical and mental wellbeing?

 

We all want to live well but sometimes we need help to do this. Live Well Link Well is a free and confidential Social Prescribing service that provides practical or emotional  support of a non-medical nature.

Our team of friendly Live Well Link workers work in partnership with GP surgeries across Tendring. They will give you time, and can help you to access appropriate support within the local community which will:

• Help you make positive changes to your personal health and wellbeing
• Identify and link you into appropriate support in the community
• Assist you in developing personal goals focused on what matters to you

 

Live Well Link Well can help you to access support with the following:
• Healthy living
• Weight management
• Lifestyle advice
• Maintaining physical and mental wellbeing
• Supporting independence
• Mobility and equipment
• Looking after someone
• Getting out and about
• Home adaptations
• Money worries
• Social Inclusion

Social prescribing is ‘more than just medicine’ – it’s a new way to help people find support with their social, emotional and practical wellbeing.
A Citizens Advice report, published in May 2015, suggested nearly a fifth of GPs consultation time was spent dealing with non-medical issues.
Throughout the UK, social prescribing projects are transforming wellbeing in the community and helping to ease pressure on traditional health and social care services.

 

Live Well Link Well  is our local social prescribing project for people in the Tendring District.  It has been funded by Essex County Council and developed with the help of a wide range of health, social care and voluntary organisations. For more information, see the Live Well Link Well leaflet here.
