How we help
Our service helps people to deal with the underlying causes that are affecting their ability to manage their health and wellbeing. We want people to feel included in their communities, to be able to live more independently and to enjoy a good quality of life
With support from one of our dedicated wellbeing workers you will set yourself realistic, achievable goals and take practical steps to improve your happiness and health. Over a series of sessions we will support you towards achieving these goals and help find solutions to the causes that might be affecting your quality of life.
We’re a non-clinical service and don’t provide social care services or manage people’s long term conditions. Support from Lancashire Wellbeing Service will not affect any on-going care programmes or financial benefits you are receiving or applying for.
At the heart of everything we do lies:
- Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
- Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
- Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
- Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.
