Ways to Wellbeing

When someone wishes to access community provision to improve their wellbeing, there may be many personal barriers they experience when doing so, such as low motivation, worry, low mood, reduced confidence and self-belief.

It can be helpful to explore whether this applies for any person you are referring into provision at Sea Change. In this instance, please consider a referral to the NHS ‘Ways2Wellbeing’ Social Prescription Scheme.

Ways2Wellbeing’ offers 1:1 wellbeing coaching sessions; this can help people to identify what they want to do more of to live well (which may include accessing provision at Seachange or elsewhere) and empower them to set their own ‘Living Well Goals’, to take steps towards achieving that.

Please note, any referrals to Ways2Wellbeing must:
  • Be 18 years of age or over
  • Have capacity to consent to partaking in the ‘Ways2Wellbeing’ scheme, as well as capacity to set their own ‘Living Well’ motivational goals (with support from the Health and Wellbeing Coach)
  • Have the ability to physically leave the home (either unaided, or with a mobility aid)
  • Be presenting with a need not normally met by Statutory Services, that could be met by that person being supported into community/voluntary activities and services
  • Be a registered patient at one of the following sites:
    • Honiton Surgery
    • Coleridge Medical Centre (Ottery St Mary)
    • Seaton and Colyton Medical Practice Townsend House Medical Centre
    • Axminster Medical Practice
    • Sid Valley Practice (The Beacon Medical Centre)
    • Rolle Medical Partnership
    • Claremont Medical Practice
    • Imperial Surgery
    • Haldon House Surgery
    • Raleigh Surgery
