Public Health: Supporting Independence Programme - WNC logo


The Council's Supporting Independence Programme is for people who are showing signs of reduced independence. It supports and manages the health and wellbeing needs of anyone eligible over the age of 18.

The programme has a team of dedicated Wellbeing Advisors. They provide you with the knowledge and resources needed to make your wellbeing a priority. Up to 12 weeks of one-to-one support is available.

How the Supporting Independence Programme Can Help You

You will work with a trained Wellbeing Advisor and use scientific assessment tools. You will work together to: 

  • identify your needs
  • receive personalised support
  • improve areas of your health and wellbeing

The goal is to help you achieve a better quality of life.

Examples of Support Include:

  • Opportunities to meet with your Advisor to 'Walk and Talk' (to become more active and increase socialisation)
  • Support to access social opportunities within your local community to reduce isolation. This might include volunteering, clubs, groups, and events to suit your hobbies and interests
  • Advice, information, and support on managing the long-term effects of COVID-19
  • Identification, support, and referrals (as appropriate) to support daily life. This might include housing support and money advice
  • Identification, intervention, and support for low-level mental health and emotional difficulties
  • Advice, information, and support on lifestyle issues. This might include nutrition, smoking, and alcohol use
  • Identification of other issues (such as blood pressure or the use of multiple medicines)
  • Referrals (where appropriate) to memory clinics, continence services, or community pharmacies
