Local support workers highlighted concerns for individuals adapting to resettlement in the UK. A key element related to strengthening skills to improve mental wellbeing resilience. Engagement with local and regional health and community leaders to commission a bespoke wellbeing service from the Refugee Council. This pilot has provided firm foundations for a regional project which we continue to support. Karen and Sue work in the CCG Primary Care team and have led the project work required for successful implementation.
