Supporting Independence Programme

Supporting Independence Programme

Posted: Mon, 25 Jan 2021 14:16 by Lizzi Bucklow-Holt

The Supporting Independence Programme, by Public Health Northamptonshire, provides up to 12 weeks of one-to-one support for those of us who may have slowed a little, are feeling less confident getting around or who need someone to help on a regular basis. More »

Now, more than ever, services across the community are working together to support those most affected by COVID. The aim is to support and enable people to maintain their independence and resilience for as long as possible. The Programme is keen to work with local communities and organisations to support vulnerable adults to improve and maintain their independence and wellbeing.

The service can be tailored to support any resident over the age of 18, who may be struggling with one or several areas of their life, leading to mild frailty or reduced independence.

The Programme is currently operating as a telephone service, offering 12 weeks of person-centred support with a trained Wellbeing Advisor. Advisors have a wealth of knowledge and contacts for community services, charities, and organisations across the county, working in partnership to achieve a positive outcome for customers.

Referrals are dependent on successful completion of the eligibility criteria, which are just a few quick questions included within the referral form. An administrator will then make contact within two working days to arrange an initial appointment with an allocated advisor. Examples of areas of support include:

• Social isolation

• Falls

• Lifestyle

• Medication

• Mental and emotional health

• Physical health and mobility

For more information and to access the online referral form, please visit:

Or call 0300 126 1000 to speak to an advisor over the phone, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm » Less
