What is Engage Wellbeing?
The Engage Wellbeing Programme provides a volunteer befriender to support isolated adults (25+) to help them sustain or improve their emotional and mental wellbeing. This currently consists of a regular telephone calls to chat, share experiences and provide emotional support.
Why is this important?
Engage Wellbeing have developed as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. There is a growing need to support people whose emotional wellbeing has been affected particularly as a result of the lockdown periods.
Our aim is to support the recovery of those who have experienced difficulties during the pandemic by providing positive, affirming relationships and practical emotional support, resulting in an improved emotional resilience and sense of wellbeing.
