Supporting Independence Programme

  • ​Have you noticed any recent changes in your health?
  • Do you have difficulties walking or need help moving about?
  • Are everyday tasks such as shopping becoming more difficult?
  • Do you need someone to help you on a regular basis?
  • When you need help, do you sometimes feel lonely or isolated?

Our service can be tailored to support anybody in the county, over the age of 18, who may be struggling with one or several areas of their life, leading to mild frailty or reduced independence. We are currently operating as a telephone service, offering 12 weeks of person-centred support with a trained Wellbeing Advisor. Advisors have a wealth of knowledge and contacts for community services, charities and organisations across the county, working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome for customers. Referrals are dependent on successful completion of the eligibility criteria, which are just a few quick questions included within the referral form. Our administrator will then contact the customer within 2 working days to arrange an initial appointment with an allocated advisor. Examples of areas we support with include:

  • Social isolation
  • Falls
  • Lifestyle
  • Medication
  • Mental and emotional health
  • Physical health and mobility

Coronavirus update (19 March 2020)
