Health & Wellbeing Coaches, Cumbria County Council
The Health and Wellbeing Coaches at Cumbria County Council use coaching techniques to support adults facing complex and multiple challenges that impact on their ability to lead happy, healthy lives. They encourage people to act on factors such as relationships, home life and health related behaviours. This is resulting in improved resilience, engagement with local communities and social networks, and reduced contact with a number of NHS services. A fantastic example of cross-organisational working.
