What does it do?

When all that’s needed is a little help to stay independent and active we can find ways to support you.

Our leading-edge prevention service changes the way we meet people’s needs. It is a complete and free advice service to help you before personal health or social problems become critical. Prevention Matters can help if you are:

  • struggling to maintain your independence
  • recovering from an illness
  • unable to get out and about
  • feeling lonely and isolated
  • feeling anxious and lacking in self-confidence

Prevention Matters links local people to q whole range of ways to help support and connect them together by:

  • finding ways to avoid being isolated
  • taking steps to improve your health
  • discovering opportunities to develop more interests
  • restoring your confidence and being in control of the things you do

We also have a Volunteer Hub for people who have a bit of time to help others. Volunteers can earn time credits to use on activities available locally or nationwide (for example entrance to the Tower of London).
