“I feel so much more positive about the future”

John is 59. He became unwell last year and was unable to work. John saw the information about Staying Well project in his GP surgery and got in touch.

Staying Well helped John access volunteering opportunities to improve his employment prospects and his self-esteem. By signposting John to the right place he was able to secure better housing for himself and is now feeling much better about his situation.

“People are so friendly and helpful here – I should keep coming!”

Angela was given details for the Staying Well project by her social worker. She had been finding it increasingly difficult to get out and about and was feeling quite lonely.

The project has connected Angela to activities in the community and helped her access transport. Angela has gone from being anxious about getting out to looking forward to this part of her week.


Without this Staying Well group I’d be rotting at home.
