Better care locally

Support for your wellbeing

To help our residents stay healthy and well, we have lots of general wellbeing advice and information for adults and older people, including how to avoid trips and falls and how to manage their general wellbeing. You can also find out more about health and social care.

However, there are other organisations within Bedfordshire that can also provide practical and emotional support to support your wellbeing.

Your Wellbeing Bedfordshire can help connect you with a local group or activity if you’re feeling isolated or lonely. It can also offer one to one support through its community wellbeing champions, who can help you make positive changes to take control of your health and wellbeing. Visit Your Wellbeing Bedfordshire's website to find out more.

With Bedford Borough Council, we work with Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) to deliver social prescribing which can support to help you make positive changes to take control of your health and wellbeing. Find out more about free, personalised, support on BRCC's website. The team contains community wellbeing champions who can help you connect with your local community, enable you to be more active and support your wellbeing. BRCC has been working in Bedfordshire’s communities for 60 years, to help develop communities. Visit BRCC's website to find out more and get in touch if you need support.

Social prescribing is being piloted in a number of GP surgeries in Central Bedfordshire, with the intention to roll the service out everywhere in due course.
