What is the Well?

The Well is a place where you can drop-in, both in your community and online and find out information and receive general advice to help you stay well and independent within your local community.

The Well allows you to speak to Health and Social Care professionals and discuss what’s important to you regarding your health and wellbeing. Here you are directed to support that best meet your needs. Our friendly, well-informed staff will support you to access a wide range of information that promotes your health and wellbeing. The Wells bring together those who know all about health and social care in your local community such as Local Area Coordinators, Social Work, Social Security Benefits and a range of other community, health and social care staff. At the Wells you will have a good conversation about what matters to you, whether this is about living a healthier lifestyle, having meaningful activities or living independently in your own home.
