A Health and Wellbeing Link Work will get to know you, they will ask you questions and listen to you. They will work with you to understand what’s important to you, help you identify and develop your strengths, skills, talents, and abilities and find the solutions that are right for you, with the aim that you will be able to seek support from your local connections, networks and community when the going gets tough.
They will regularly review how things are going and if they need to do things differently, to ensure you achieve your goals. You may start to see things improve very quickly but sometimes it may take a bit longer. We can work with you for up to a year, to support you achieve your goals.
The support can involve helping you to:
- identify your personal strengths, goals and needs
- access information, advice, and support
- build your own support network
- find practical ways to resolve problems
help you be involved and part of your community
