Wellbeing Our Way is a community of individuals and organisations. We work together to develop approaches which enable people to manage their health, and live well, in ways which matter to them.
We focus on five approaches:
- Peer support
- Care and support planning
- Supporting self-management
- Person-centred information and helplines
- Engaging people in shaping health and care support
We bring people together to build their knowledge, skills, confidence and motivation so they can develop these approaches within their own organisations.
By learning from others’ experience and hearing how they have dealt with certain barriers I have been able to find my own solutions. We are now at an exciting period of development in this area of work and I look forward to the new challenges that lie ahead thanks to the experience, confidence and knowledge I have gained from these meetings.
Wellbeing Our Way is supported by The Health Foundation, an independent charity working to improve the quality of healthcare in the UK.
Model of Impact
The model of impact is a simple one page summary demonstrating the difference we would like the programme to make. It has been developed collaboratively with National Voices’ members, people with lived experience, the steering group and key stakeholders.
To be honest, I think it should be used as a blueprint for every charity, the statement says everything we need to doLee Marriott-Dowding, James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer
