Wellbeing Suffolk are please to release their latest e-newsletter ‘Wellbeing for Teachers’. We know it is a hard time for them juggling the demands of home life and online learning so have put together a whole range of advice and support to help them. We have a special feature Teacher’s Voice – Adventures in Online Teaching by James MacRae and an update on the Lipswich project which we have featured in previous Wellbeing newsletters.
We are also introducing a closed door social just for teachers to allow them to access peer support in the absence of their team rooms and staff rooms. If you know anyone who would find this useful then all they need to do to access the sessions is send us a request via our email (SuffolkSocials@nsft.nhs.uk) and we’ll send you the access codes direct. There is a direct link to the newsletter on the website as follows:
It’s finally December and to help people through this very unusual Christmas season Wellbeing have put together this special ‘how to guide’ for Christmas. You can find this and all our e-newsletters on our website but please do feel free to pass this on to those you think might benefit from it. If you would like to get involved with any of our newsletters in the coming new year don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are looking at running the same titles next year and hope to introduce a Perinatal newsletter and a parent carer special edition of Connected in the new year so if you have a service to offer or would like to contribute then we are happy to include you.
Thank you all for reading this years editions and for helping them to become a firm fixture in the Wellbeing offer. Take care, happy Christmas and all the best wishes for the coming year.

I firstly wanted to start by thanking you for your ongoing support throughout the past challenging year.
OneLife Suffolk ended 2020 with the positive news of a two-year extension of our contract with Suffolk County Council which means we can continue to deliver healthy lifestyle services across Suffolk until March 2023.
Our response to Covid-19
Our services are more important than ever to our local communities in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. They include Adult Weight Management, Stop Smoking, Families & Young People (weight management targeted to ages 5-18), Get Help To Get Active (targeted towards those with long-term conditions), Health Walks and NHS Health Checks.
At the onset of Covid-19, we adapted our face-to-face services to provide virtual delivery and have developed a suite of digital resources, including information sheets, podcasts and videos. During the pandemic, we have made over 100,000 wellbeing calls to those who are most in need of our services.
Continuing to create positive outcomes
OneLife Suffolk benefits from the research and insight provided by our parent company MoreLife and partner Leeds Beckett University which helps us ensure we get the best outcomes for our clients.
Working together to support those in need of our services
- 12,401 people started one of our Healthy Lifestyle Services
