Resilient People

We are proud to be involved with the pioneering SPRING Social Prescribing project. The project recieves direct referrals from local GP practices for individuals aged 18+. SPRING connects individuals to a variety of non-clinical local support programmes and services, and supports individuals through a holistic approach to health.

Community Health Matters

Community Health Navigators offer 1:1 support to individuals (aged between 18 - 50 years) to set achievable goals and connect to support available in the local community. This is done by signposting both to external agencies and to our own therapeutic and group work services.


Offering practical and emotional support to individuals (aged 50+) who are lonely and isolated. Dedicated volunteers provide 1:1 home, telephone and community-based befriending while our peer support and social activity groups encourage older people to rebuild links with their community. We offer specialised support to older people who have been identified as being at risk of malnutrition through practical cooking courses and by providing opportunities to enjoy eating in a social setting. We provide bespoke home visiting and telephone befriending specifically for isolated older people in Coalburn, Douglas and Glespin who are housebound or currently restricted to staying at home.
