About the Event

Our key beneficiaries are drug and alcohol users and their families. We provide supported housing and currently have 51 residential beds across Cumbria and North Lancs.

We also provide outreach support, therapeutic programmes, employment and volunteer opportunities, social activities, community food clubs and a social supermarket. The Well Communities has access to a community garden space for any outdoor events.

In essence The Well Communities de-medicalise and re-personalise interventions (in line with the NHS 10-year plan) and use the strength of our wider community to keep people engaged regardless of differences. This chimes with the QALY’s model of operating which is clearly aimed at improving Quality Adjusted Life Years, overall quality of life is improved in the cohort who engage with The Well Communities as we create a sense of meaning and belonging through connection, together we are stronger.
