re:discover (Health in Mind)

Supporting people to make connections with people, activities and groups in their community.

Service Description

re:discover is for anyone aged 18 and over experiencing loneliness and isolation that wants to improve their mental health and wellbeing through social activities.

People will be supported by a trained volunteer for up to six months who will work alongside them to connect them into their community. The person receiving support will be encouraged to take the lead and identify things they would like to explore.

This can include:
