Our Community Wellbeing Champions (CWC's) can provide personalised support to help you make positive changes to take control of your health and wellbeing.
The difference in my Mum since she started seeing the Social Prescribing caseworker is simply amazing. She is a different person. Our relationship has improved as a result and she understands me better than ever before. I wish this had happened ages ago. It so nice to see her happy.
CWC's can listen to your story and give you support to join local services such as exercise classes and social groups.
They can also work one-to-one to help you set health-related goals and support you to make sustainable changes.
This service is free of charge and is open to eligible patients in GP practices in Bedford Borough or Central Bedfordshire.
Our One to One Support service is often also referred to as Social Prescribing by doctors and other health related professionals.
Social Prescribing allows doctors or other medical staff to refer their patients to non-medical services.
These services are often run by charities like us, with the aim of helping people to take greater control of their own health and wellbeing.
Thank you again, Julia. It's wonderful that there is support available like what I've had from yourself - I genuinely think this application would still not have been completed if I'd been doing it myself.
