What we do

Your Wellbeing Bedfordshire provides information, advice and support to help you solve your own problems and build a good life as a member of the community.

One to one support

Do you sometimes feel isolated and lonely?

Do you need support and advice to deal with your problems?

Our Community Wellbeing Champions can provide personalised support to help you make positive changes to take control of your health and wellbeing.

We are really enjoying having Ed Costello in Caddington. He is always extremely wise and helpful.

Walking for health

Group in walking to improve their quality of life and wellbeing

Our health walks are regular walks which are free and open to all.

They are aimed particularly at people who are presently doing little or no exercise and usually last from 60 to 90 minutes, though there are also some shorter beginners walks.

At the end of the walk we encourage walkers to socialise therefore many of our walks finish where people can have a drink and a chat.

Village Agents

Village Agents make home visits to older people living in villages in Bedford Borough, to help them with free support & assistance.

  • Home security & safety
  • keeping warm in the winter & reducing energy bills
  • pensions & benefits
  • Advice for carers
  • Support for people living alone
  • Help filling in forms

Community transport

Our minibus service provides safe and convenient wheelchair accessible travel for people unable to use public transport.

Door to Door in the Bedford area and Greensand Country Community Transport across much of Central Bedfordshire  provide wheelchair accessible minibuses for people who find it hard to use public transport.

We aim to provide a reliable, personal and friendly service, allowing added freedom and independence.

Good Neighbour Schemes

The Good Neighbour scheme supports groups to provide a ‘safety net’ for their local area, responding to requests from residents in need of a bit of extra help. Such as:

  • Lifts to the shops or doctors
  • Collecting shopping
  • Small household jobs such as changing a light-bulb
  • Walking the dog
  • Popping round for a chat over a cup of tea

She has stayed in touch with me and encouraged me and put me in touch with members of the local community and organisations who together have helped me to recover and lead a normal life.
