At The Life Rooms we have a threefold approach to improving health: learning, social prescribing and community.
Our three pillar model is based on a social approach which enables people to become more active in their own health.
We focus on prevention and enabling the whole community – service users, carers, their families and local communities – to bring about change.
This model improves the health of the population reduces pressure on clinical services.
Services are confidential unless there is a concern about a risk to yourself or someone else. If this is the case, the reason for breaking your confidence will be made explicit wherever possible by a member of the team.
