Wellbeing

To help you and your family to stay well during these difficult times, Changes Wellbeing Services can now be accessed digitally, i.e. via on-line training programmes and one-to-one support, (video or phone).

We have also changed some of our programmes, i.e. so that they are shorter and cover things to help you to cope with having to stay at home

As members of the general population, we are also welcoming and offering support to keyworkers, who continue to provide essential services that keep us healthy, safe, fed and connected…

On-line Wellbeing programmes include:
