Community Inclusion

Community Wellbeing Offer

The Community Wellbeing Hubs can offer support to you from the age of 16 but you will need to be accompanied by a family member or carer. Once you are 18 years of age, you can access all our activities yourself.

We can offer low-level support to enable you to access our services, however we cannot offer full personal care. If you require this; a carer, personal assistant or a family member can accompany you.

 

Life skills

We can offer you help with:

  • Help to get about – using public or community transport
  • Cooking skills – making healthy snacks and preparing meals
  • Activities to help meet other people or keep in touch with your old friends – we have lots of activities in our Wellbeing Hubs from craft to sport or you can just call in for a chat.
  • One to one support to help you access activities and services in your own local area.
  • General information and advice.

 

Help staying safe

It can be a real problem if we do not feel safe and comfortable when we are trying to do something.  This is the same when we are trying to get out into the community, we need to feel safe and supported
