There are lots of services in your local area which can help you for a range of different issues and levels of need:
Help in the community
Community anchors are independent services found in your local area which may help you manage your health and wellbeing. They are often located in your local community centres or church and provide a wide-range of opportunities to support and improve our wellbeing.
These could include clubs, classes, events, and meet-ups.
Sometimes you might be referred to a community anchor by your GP for non-medical support for problems like loneliness, depression, or anxiety, but this isn’t a requirement.
