“I had no idea that my isolation was having such a detrimental effect on my life as a whole. But thanks to LifeLink I am now starting to see an all improved road ahead.”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.

LifeLink is currently available in Brandon, Haverhill and Mildenhall. To find out more visit the page for your area.
