Changes to life circumstances, such as housing and finances, can have a significant impact on both your mental and physical health.
Our Wellbeing services aims to reduce the impact these challenges can have on your quality of life.
We offer support for practical, situational and social challenges including housing, money worries, drug and alcohol misuse, loneliness, social isolation and general wellness, such as diet, healthy living and sleep.
If you feel that you or someone you know are an immediate danger, please contact 999
We provide friendly support and advice to improve your daily life and wellbeing. We can guide you to the right support if you feel that you’re struggling because of a change to your circumstances, such as:
- Housing issues
- Money worries
- Drug and alcohol misuse
- Loneliness & social isolation
- General wellness and healthy living
It may be that you’ve already been discharged by your GP after looking for help, and that you haven’t been referred into a mental health service and you feel that you still need support.
We offer one-to-one sessions over the phone, online support, wellbeing workshops as well as supported signposting to local services and advise

Help you develop a plan
We can arrange a Choices for Wellbeing Call (CWC) with you.
This session lasts approximately 25 minutes and will give you the chance to talk about the difficulties you’re having.
At the end of the call we will agree on a Wellbeing Pathway to help you. This is a plan of action that pulls on our knowledge of local services and common difficulties our clients experience.
Monthly Virtual Workshops
We run virtual workshops each month to kelp equip you with skills
Motivation & Intentions Workshop (1 hour)
It is very normal to experience times of low motivation. This is a stand-alone workshop that explores practical tips to explore goal setting to boost motivation levels.
Resilience & Reflections Workshop (1 hour)
Resilience gives us the ability to face, overcome and be strengthened by difficult experiences. This is a stand-alone workshop that will look at the five areas of resilience and go through practical tips to help you strengthen your own resilience.
