We're working to improve health and wellbeing in Somerset
Wellbeing South Somerset
Wellbeing South Somerset is a huge directory of support groups, activities and services in South Somerset. Residents can easily access support and information that could improve their health and wellbeing. It’s also a great signposting resource for local GPs, Health Coaches and voluntary sector organisations.
Community Connectors provide an important link between local people and the support available to them in their community. Would you like to become a Community Connector? Come to a free Signposting Workshop! You’ll find about the different types of support available in our community, so that you can share your knowledge with others - enabling them to access groups, services and activities that could improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life. Take a look at the events page for details of our next workshop!
Community Partnerships Project
Our Community Partnerships Project is an initiative aimed at working with communities in South Somerset to improve health and wellbeing. With increasing cuts in public services and charitable organisations expected to deliver more services with limited funding, there is a need for community organisations to work more collaboratively to support their residents' health and wellbeing. We launched the Community Partnership Project in response to this need, and in collaboration with voluntary sector organisations, GP practices, and housing & community organisations, we have developed and now support Community Partnerships in Yeovil, Wincanton and South Petherton.
