Empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing

In 2012 we were commissioned by Halton CCG to design and develop a social model of health called ‘Community Wellbeing Practices’ that would integrate with all 17 GP practices in the borough. The model has three domains: community navigation; social prescribing and asset based community development approaches. A team of non-medical Community Wellbeing Officers work between the GP practices and the wider community and support patients who have been referred by their clinician (or self-referral) because social problems are causing or exacerbating their health problems.

It always seems impossible until it's done...

I was born and raised in Whitehaven, Cumbria and after experiencing homelessness myself in my teens, I spent many years working hard to move out of poverty and create a better life.  In June 2013 I set up my company Time to Change (West Cumbria) Project CIC to tackle the issues of homelessness and unemployment in West Cumbria.
