Community Wellbeing Hub
We passionately believe that everyone in Bath and North East Somerset should have access to the support and advice they need. To that end the hub team, partners & local charities are working in partnership via the Community Wellbeing Hub, because together we’re stronger.
The Hub offers a range of services that aim to support people to live a healthier and fulfilled life. The Hub works with a range of partners who have expertise in mental health, physical health, stop smoking, managing weight, food and diabetes. The services also include access to the Independent Living Service, Home from Hospital and Citizens’ Advice Bureau Banes.
The Hub also offers a range of services to support people that need help with employment, housing and income. The hub works with a range of partners who have expertise in money matters, benefit support, employment law and disputes and housing matters.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the hub can assist people who are in need with shopping and picking up medication. In addition, the hub will deliver emergency food to people who are shielding or are in urgent need and have no other means of getting essential supplies.
So if you need help or advice!
We have combined resources to ensure that, as a service, we are able to provide sustainable and appropriate responses to meet community needs. This includes access to over 2,500 volunteers recruited, checked and trained by Banes 3SG.
