Local Support

There are local organisations and charities that run support services and groups that aim to help you get back on your feet and feel less alone.

 

KingsCare Wellbeing Program

Are you 50+ with one or two (or more) long term health conditions? Are you spending more time than you want at the doctors?

 

We are partners with the other four patient support groups in South Devon (The Wellbeing Partnership) in running a Wellbeing Programme.

We have 3 Wellbeing Coordinators whose role is to spend time with patients who would benefit from some support to think about what matters to them and how they can best make those little differences in their lives that make such a big difference to their ability to enjoy life.

Referrals made through a Health Professional.
