Living Well North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire County Council

The Living Well service was designed to play a key role in North Yorkshire County Councils strengths based approach to prevention. Its primary goals are to prevent crises by promoting independence and self-help, and reducing isolation and loneliness. The service is only available to those who are in need, rather than being open to all, and the aim is to complement rather than duplicate the work of voluntary services in the area. Funding is provided by the councils Public Health team. Impetus for the service came from the recognition that many of those who were approaching the council for help were not in fact eligible for ongoing care and support and in many cases were in need of lower levels of support than that typically provided by adult social care services. The two groups for whom this was most often the case were those individuals who had contacted the council for information or advice and those who had been assessed by social care but had been found to be ineligible for support.
