LifeLink connects people to social activities, clubs, groups and local services that are on offer in their local community. LifeLink coordinators coach participants on a one-to-one basis, working together to find each person’s ways to improve their wellbeing and meet their needs.
It is a free service for anyone over 16 years old.
There are a range of benefits which include:
- improved mental health and wellbeing
- meeting new people and developing new friendships
- feeling healthier and fitter
- learning new skills
- opportunities for volunteering and developing employability skills.
GPs, primary and secondary services and supporters or mentors within the community can refer to the service. Individuals can also self-refer.
Participants work on a one-to-one basis with a health coach who supports them in identifying and accessing local services, groups, clubs or activities that can help address social issues or needs.
