Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health is as important as physical health. It is crucial to improve and maintain emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing and support others.

Community Neighbourhood Link Workers service (CNLWsupports residents who are socially isolated and lonely to re-engage with their community.

Many people find themselves feeling isolated and lonely at some point in their lives. Community Neighbourhood Link Workers (CNLW) support residents for up to 6 weeks on a one-to-one basis to help build confidence in seeking out and/or rediscovering hobbies and interests. They aim to help you stay active and independent by proving information and advice about:

·        Looking after your health;

·        Taking part in the community-based activities and local events;

·        Sharing your skills with others or gaining new ones; and

·        Volunteering opportunities.

 

The initial meeting with a CNLW can take place in a local neighbourhood (e.g. in a library or a community centre), at home or over the telephone. They arrange a six-week action plan that supports you to keep active, healthy and socially connected.
