About the Wellbeing & Independence in the Community (WIN)

WIN offer short term support people to take part in a wide variety of social & leisure opportunities where they may otherwise find it difficult to get involved. We help people to identify how they would like to become more socially involved in their communities.  Helping to reduce social isolation & loneliness which can affect health & wellbeing.

The Wellbeing and Independence Network (WIN) is made up of three main services which will provide practical help to adults who would otherwise find it very difficult to organise the support they need to remain independent and well.

The three main services which will provide very practical help to adults who would otherwise find it very difficult to organise the support they need to remain independent and well. This assistance is aimed specifically at older people, people with a wide range of disabilities or poor mobility, and their carers. Users of the service may be either overcoming a sudden event or illness or they may need some short-term help to live a normal and independent life or to stop a crisis from happening. The WIN services will also be able to plan tailored support for people whose needs are very specific.

The three main services are:

  • Wellbeing and independence at home
  • Living well in the community
  • Wellbeing and independence through community transport
