Get a helping hand!

When daily life gets in the way of improving your health, we can help you tackle your problems and feel better.

Is any of this impacting on your life at present?

  • Housebound
  • Recently bereaved
  • Frail & Elderly
  • Family Concerns
  • Language Barriers
  • Living Alone
  • Money Worries
  • Housing Issues
  • Unemployment

Improving your health takes time and support

Our team of Practice Link Workers are here to help you look after your health and feel better. Lots of things in your everyday life can affect your health and get in the way of making the changes you want to make. Instead of giving you a prescription for a medicine, your Practice Link Worker will work with you to create your own social prescription. This will help you to access activities and support that will improve your health and enjoyment of life. Whatever worries or questions you may have, we are here to listen and will help you get the advice and support you need. 

How can a Practice Link Worker help me?

We can link you up with services in the community that can provide you with:

  • Support to make positive changes in your life 
  • People to talk to about how you are feeling
  • Help with housing, benefits and financial problems
  • Advice on jobs, training, and education
  • Exercise, sports and games
  • Arts, music, outdoors and creative activities and classes.

Your social prescription could include help with taking up a new hobby, doing more exercise, making new friends or taking part in local events and social activities. Our team of Practice Link Worker are here to help you do it!

We have teamed up with over 150 community services so that you can access the best advice and support available
