The Community Wellbeing Service brings together Village and Community Agents and Social Prescribing in a new, exciting service for local people.
Independence trust is proud to have been commissioned by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Gloucestershire County Council to deliver the new Community Wellbeing Service for residents of Stroud and Berkeley Vale.
Many things affect our health and wellbeing, such as where we live, how we spend our time, our financial situation, and our relationship with friends and family.
Sometimes we all need a helping hand, someone to listen to us when we are struggling, or perhaps someone to find out what help is available in our local community.
There is a Community Wellbeing Agent local to you; and they will also become a familiar face at your local GP practice.
Who is the service for?
The service is free and available to anyone over the age of 16 living in Gloucestershire, or who is registered with a Gloucestershire GP.
The Community Wellbeing Agents have extensive knowledge of local services and can:
- Talk to you about the challenges you may be facing and what would help you
- Offer advice, information and practical support
- Actively signpost you to services that can help you find solutions to everyday problems
- Discuss your interests and hobbies and help you find local groups you can get involved in
