I want support to self-manage my long term condition

We understand the uncertainties of living with or caring for a person with a long-term condition or self-managing aspects of life which are sometimes difficult. We practice every day the tools and techniques that you can learn by attending any of the services that we run. We want you to develop and improve the quality of your life.

The Live Well team can guide you through support available to help you manage a long-term health condition. This could be your own long-term health condition or someone you care for.

There are a range of options available which are tailored to meet your individual needs:

Self-Management Courses

Our self-management service runs 6- and 7-week courses (each session lasts 2.5 hours) for anyone who has any condition which affects their health and wellbeing. Currently the courses are being successfully run online and are accessed through the free application Microsoft Teams. Find out more here.

 

Workshops

We offer a variety of self-management workshops which include; Feeling Positive, Busting Stress, and Coping with Life using Relaxation. Each workshop runs for 1 to 2 hours and are available either face-to-face at a community venue or accessed online.  Find out more here.

 

Volunteering

All our courses, workshops and groups are facilitated by dedicated volunteers. Each one will have received intensive training and decided to share the skills that they have learnt and are using to help others.

 

S.M.a.S.H. MH (Self-Management and Self Help)

An independent community group organised and run by volunteers. The groups are drop-ins, so there is no need to book a place or commit to attending on a monthly basis. The group is aimed at anyone who wishes to improve their self-management skills. These groups offer a space for people to come together in an informal environment, where they can share tips, ideas and make new friends over a cuppa in a fun, supportive atmosphere. **Currently being run online via Zoom.
