Supporting Independence Programme
Services across the community are working together to support those most affected by COVID. The aim of the Supporting Independence Programme is to enable people to maintain their independence and resilience for as long as possible. They are keen to promote their service to the wider community, to support vulnerable adults to improve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.
Supporting Independence services can be tailored to support anybody in the county, over the age of 18, who may be struggling with one or several areas of their life, leading to mild frailty or reduced independence. They are currently operating as a telephone service, offering 12 weeks of person-centred support with a trained Wellbeing Advisor. Advisors have a wealth of knowledge and contacts for community services, charities and organisations across the county, working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome for customers.
How Can They Help?
Referrals are dependent on successful completion of the eligibility criteria, which are just a few quick questions included within the referral form. The Supporting Independence administrator will then contact the customer within 2 working days to arrange an initial appointment with an allocated advisor. Examples of areas they support with include:
- Social isolation
- Mental and emotional health
- Physical health and mobility
