'Live Well in Braunton’ was set up with amazing support from our Community almost three years ago. Our aim is to help improve the health and wellbeing of anyone living in Braunton and the surrounding communities.
We work very closely with our local GP Surgery at Caen Medical Centre providing 1 to 1 support for individuals via our social prescriber. We are also engaged with most of the voluntary and statutory organisations and groups across the area, supporting existing projects, helping to identify gaps in what is available and bringing people together to fill them.
Our most exciting projects currently include the development of a ‘Men’s Shed’ and support for the fledgling ‘Braunton and Communities Forum’. We have several other areas we are working on and hope to share with you in the coming months, including more work with younger people in Braunton, befriending support and helping to reduce the impact of mental health issues through the use of our amazing countryside.
Annie has worked on a 1:1 basis and with groups of people to improve their well-being over a number of years and is an amazing asset to Live Well and the residents who see her. Annie gives her time generously to understand residents, find out what matters to them and work with them to connect them to the right activity.
We have a new Community Developer, Sophie join our team in January 22. We look forward to telling you a bit more about her when she starts.
