Living Well Sefton can support you on a one-to-one basis with a broad range of issues.
Ever thought it was time to change how you live in order to improve your health? Living a healthy life doesn’t mean making huge alterations all at once, making small changes can help you feel better about yourself and your life.
Living Well Sefton is a FREE service with a focus on supporting residents with issues that may be affecting their health and wellbeing. It is collaboration of various Sefton organisations, our partners, who have the expertise and knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
We mainly operate through our partners in the community, but we also have a drop-in centre located on the bottom floor of Bootle Strand called Strand By Me open to all. Here you can speak to a member of our team face-to-face in order to get a referral to the service, as well as accessing a host of health information and advice available from our partners and other charities, organisations etc.
As part of the service there are also our Living Well Mentors to talk to, who will work with you on a one-to-one basis. The mentors will help you to identify any areas where small tweaks can be made to have a big impact on improving your health and wellbeing. We will help you in many areas of life, such as: exercise, cooking and eating better, stopping smoking, coping better with stressful situations, help with debt and benefits, and more.
Our Living Well mentors are based within our various partners, these include; Active Sefton, Brighter Living Partnership, Citizens Advice Sefton, Feelgood Factory, May Logan Centre, Smokefree Sefton, and Sefton Carers Centre. We also have a number of local Neighbourhood Partners who work with you to provide the support you need to live a happy life and improve your health and well being.
Our Community Connectors are also here for you. They can support you in being part of your local community, reduce isolation, give you a helping hand to get out and about and also inform you of any activities and services happening your in area to help you on your journey.
We also work with our Social Prescribing Link Worker team, funded through the Clinical Commissioning Groups and Primary Care Networks work, alongside GP practices. The team work throughout Sefton, helping people to set personal action plans and to connect with their local community and the support available on their doorstep.
The service is led by Sefton CVS and funded through Sefton Council Public Health Team.
