Living Well & Early Help is an island wide low level community service offer. This service is delivered by approximately 18 full-time colleagues, split in to three teams, who will respond to a variety of enquiries directly from members of the community or from professionals.
Our community work is greatly enhanced by our four partnership community hubs, these are based in Aspire Ryde, PAN Community Centre Newport, West Wight Community Centre and Salisbury Gardens Ventnor. The community hubs are managed independently and assist their local community with a huge variety of support while linking in with Living Well colleagues for additional options (their offers may vary due to different buildings, councils and locations, so it is best to consult their individual websites for specific details of their offers).
The Living Well & Early Help team receive enquiries from members of the community seeking advice, guidance, or support for specific concerns. They also work in the community delivering groups, activities, information points and more, building connections and linking people together. Their focus is on helping to enhance the community offer so that they can grow stronger, more resilient communities that look out for each other and support each other to thrive in their local environment. We also link in with a wide variety of charities and support agencies to ensure we offer the right kind of help to match the need. By coming together to provide these services we aim to develop an approach that sits equally well with the local community and the island wide communities encouraging them to review and evolve their community offer to ensure people get the support they need locally before they hit crisis.
