Calderdale - Staying Well

The Staying Well team works with people to access the hundreds of social and physical activities available in the community as a way to address loneliness and isolation.  People with active social lives tend to be happier and healthier and may even see health improvements.
 
Any adult in Calderdale can benefit from the service which is client-led.  The Staying Well worker will spend time with a client to identify the support they need and help them to navigate a range of services.  Support can range between providing information about local activities and organisations to accompanying a client to an activity to help them to settle in. The Staying Well service also works with community groups to develop social activities and interventions that meet the needs of the clients including volunteering opportunities.
 
Pharmacy teams can refer directly to the service or encourage the client to self-refer to the Staying Well service. More information about the service can be found here: stayingwellhub.com including how to make a referral.
