New Self-Care Services
We are delighted to announce the launch of 6 new self-care services. The services aim to provide a wide range of support to cater to your varying interests and hobbies.
What is Self-Care?
Self-care involves the actions that you take for yourself, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, maintain and improve your wellbeing. Self-care activities add energy, purpose and creativity to our weekly routines. They are a great way to get more skilled at thinking, feeling and engaging with the world in a healthier and more productive way.
Can the Self-Care Services Help Me?
The Community Living Well programme helps people to take more control of their mental health and physical wellbeing. They also build social contact access to community, leisure, education, arts and volunteering opportunities. There is a range of different self-care services that can be accessed through Community Living Well. Details of each are listed below.
