Nova is the lead partner works collaboratively with the Trust to deliver this innovative service, which aims to improve the wider health and wellbeing of adult Wakefield residents by promoting independence through social prescribing and supported self-management interventions.
Social prescribing involves working with individuals to identify their non-clinical needs, creating personalised care action plans, and making connections to local support to help people to live healthier and happier lives. Live Well Wakefield operates this support across the Wakefield District, providing a bridge between Primary Care and other statutory services to local VCSE provision.
Live Well Wakefield also provides a range of peer led Self-Management Courses and Workshops, offering a range of self-help tools and techniques to help individuals to manage their wellbeing whilst living with long-term physical or mental health conditions.
As part of the Live Well Wakefield service, Nova administers the Live Well Small Grants, a funding stream designed to ensure VSCE organisations have the resources they need to continue to offer important services, and to adapt to the needs of their communities.
