Supporting Independence Programme

Supporting Independence Programme

The Supporting Independence Programme is a Northamptonshire Public Health service, delivered free of charge in community clinics across the county. We provide tailored support to clients (aged 18 & over) in several areas of their life, which may impact their every-day independence & wellbeing.

With up to 12 weeks of one-to-one support, our dedicated Wellbeing Advisors are committed to improving client's health and wellbeing, helping them to achieve a better quality of life.

Examples of support include:

• Opportunities to meet with your Advisor to 'Walk and Talk' with the aim of increasing physical activity and socialisation.

• Support to access social opportunities within your local community to reduce isolation, including volunteering and clubs, groups and events to suit your hobbies and interests.

• Identification, intervention and support for low-level mental health and emotional difficulties.

• Identification, support and referral as appropriate to support daily life including housing support and money advice.

• Advice, information and support on lifestyle issues such as nutrition, smoking and alcohol use.

• Identification of other issues such as blood pressure or use of multiple medicines and referral where appropriate including to memory clinics, continence services or community pharmacies.

Individuals can self-refer or make a referral on someone else's behalf and can do this by completing our short eligibility assessment via the link below. A member of our administration team will endeavour to contact clients within two working days to arrange an initial appointment.
