Tavistock Area Wellbeing

A social prescribing and hospital discharge support service for Tavistock, Bere Alston, Princetown, Lifton and Yelverton

Tavistock Area Wellbeing provides social prescribing for individuals living in Tavistock, Bere Alston, Princetown, Yelverton, Lifton. The service is open to any adult who is socially isolated, is a carer or has 2 or more long-term conditions.

Our social prescribing service supports you in improving your health and wellbeing by helping you identify what matters most to you, then connecting you to local community services and activities which can best help you achieve these goals.

We also provide short-term support to peoplethat are settling back into living at home after being discharged from hospital. Our service connects referrals with local organisations suited to helping them in the aim of enhancing their health and wellbeing at home post-discharge and reducing readmissions to hospital.

Referrals for both these services are made by health and social care professionals, as well as voluntary and community sector groups who have been approved to make referrals by West Devon CVS. If your group would like to be able to make referrals please contact karen@westdevoncvs.org.

If you think you might benefit from this service, please contact your healthcare professional.

Tavistock Area Wellbeing has been made possible through the funding of Livewell Southwest and West Devon Primary Care Network. The programme is sponsored by Tavistock Area Health Alliance.
