Community Health and Wellbeing

Community Health and Wellbeing provides a range of services to help people improve their mental and physical health and wellbeing.

What do we deliver?

Working in partnership with Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups, the NHS, local and national charities, and businesses we connect people with the services they need, when they need them. We have a number of projects across the country working to improve community health and wellbeing:

Live Well Kent delivered on behalf of Kent County Council and the NHS the programme provides individually tailored support free to anyone aged over 17. At Live Well Kent our aim is to help people improve their mental and physical health and to strengthen and take control of their overall wellbeing. Working across the communities of Kent with a wide array of local partners we ensure that if you want to improve your everyday living, tackle levels of anxiety, become more independent and confident, meet new people, get better skills or find a job, then Live Well Kent will help.

The Suffolk Wellbeing Service is designed to help individuals manage and cope better with a range of workplace challenges, such as bullying, stress/anxiety, harassment or risk of redundancy. The service supports individuals to ensure they can maintain their jobs or address the challenges they face in employment in a constructive and positive way.

In south, north and east London we offer our Aim4Work programme, a specialist employability project which supports people with common mental health conditions. Elsewhere in London, we offer the Get Back on Track programme in Islington, in partnership with Islington Council and Islington NHS CCG. This programme connects people to other services, as well as providing support on workplace issues and health and wellbeing.

Many participants in our health and wellbeing programmes struggle in their daily lives with a wide range of common mental illness (CMI) or, for some, a more serious mental illness (SMI). Our programmes work with and connect to Primary and Secondary Care organisations, Housing Providers and a wide array of local support agencies to ensure the individual can get the help and support they need to better cope with the challenges they face. This support in turn enables and helps participants function better in their family, working or community environments, living a better quality of life every day.
