Yesterday Emma and I enjoyed visiting The Mannamead Wellbeing Hub; part of a network of neighbourhood hubs, connecting the local community to information and activities that support their wellbeing. They also work in partnership with a range of organisations in the city who can provide additional health and wellbeing support.
You probably already know that being more involved in your community can be good for you, and that joining a group or club and connecting with others can improve your life. But it’s not always easy to know where to go, or how to get started. The Community Advisor at the hub can help.
Wellbeing Hubs Aims
- To improve the health and wellbeing outcomes for local people
- To reduce inequalities in health and wellbeing
- To improve people’s experience of care
- To improve the sustainability of the health and wellbeing system
The Community Advisor is based at the Mannamead Wellbing Hub and provides advice and support to local residents in Mannamead, Higher Compton, Hartley, Peverell, Mutley and Eggbuckland (south of the parkway) to help them engage in the community and to improve their wellbeing. Support can be provided in the following way;
- One to one advice sessions
- Identifying and achieving wellbeing goals
- Connecting to activities and services in the community (like Mindful Art Club.)
If you want to be referred to the Community Advisor fill out a quick form on their website.
If you want to try Mindful Art Club just come along to one of our drop-in sessions. No need to book.
