Life Links service to end


28/04/2017


 


We wanted to let you know that our Life Links service will not continue after the end of June. 



 The pilot project was funded for 2 years and we can now confirm that the project will come to an end on 30th June 2017, in line with the original contract timings.


Life Links has consistently delivered excellent wellbeing outcomes to our clients and has been a very successful project.  The learnings we have made from the project will be used to inform any future wellbeing services which are commissioned in Cheshire East.


The project delivered significant numbers of wellbeing improvement outcomes for people across the length and breadth of Cheshire East and exceeded expectations.  We’re very proud of the work Life Links has done:


•We have provided intensive, in-home face to face help to almost 1,000 people across the length and breadth of Cheshire East


•Using our outreach vehicle to access community settings across the county, we have spoken to over 10,100 people since we launched in 2015


•We have provided signposting support to over 300 people – introducing them to support services across the community provided by third sector partners


•We were targeted to find people who were unknown to health and care services and we achieved this with the majority of our clients self-referring (or being referred via a concerned family member)



•65% of clients said that, following our intervention, they felt their quality of life had improved and 69% felt an improvement in their mental wellbeing


•100% of our clients would recommend us


Going forward we will be unable to take any new referrals so that we can focus on reaching a satisfactory outcome with all the clients we are currently helping.  From the middle of May we will be unable to continue with our outreach events.


 


We would like to say a huge thank you to all the Cheshire East Council, NHS and third sector service partners (too many to name individually) who have helped us deliver such a successful service over the last 2 years.  We couldn’t have achieved the wellbeing outcomes we did without their dedication to the communities we serve.
