|Do you know someone experiencing hardship?|
The Local Welfare Assistance Scheme (LWAS) is set up to help those in Suffolk who are in need of essential household items or financial support. You can find out more here.
We have a friendly team of Employment Advisers at Wellbeing Suffolk who have supported many people with their employment situation where their mental wellbeing is effected as a result.
During the lockdown period our Employment Advisers have supported many people in their online virtual socials offering advise such as:
- Successful Job Searching https://www.wellbeingnands.co.uk/suffolk/event/successful-job-searching-2/
- Interview Preparation https://www.wellbeingnands.co.uk/suffolk/event/interview-preparation-2/
- How to write a CV
- And much more, all which you can find here https://www.wellbeingnands.co.uk/suffolk/social-events/
The good thing about our virtual socials are that you do not need to self-refer to the service first, you can just click the join link for Zoom when the session begins. These socials are repeated often so keep a look out for them.
We also have a range of webinars that you might find useful as well to share out, we have webinars aimed at all sorts of audiences: https://www.wellbeingnands.co.uk/suffolk/get-support/courses/
