The Surrey Virtual Wellbeing Hub is a digital platform which supports Surrey residents who need interactive mental health and emotional wellbeing support during the COVID-19 isolation measures. The Hub connects you to free online resources and support available across Surrey. This service will also offer support moving forward to target those who are socially isolated, even after the Coronavirus outbreak.
A joint partnership between Surrey Heartlands Health & Care Partnership, Surrey County Council, Surrey and Borders Partnership and voluntary sector partners, the Hub is designed to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for connecting people to appropriate online mental health and emotional wellbeing support, either through self-referral or referral from a third party.
The Hub hosts a range of activities and support sessions from Surrey third party providers including Community Connections (Richmond Fellowship, Catalyst, Mary Frances Trust and their partners), Age UK Surrey and Surrey Coalition of Disabled People. It is intended to sign-up more organisations as the project progresses.
The Hub launches on 4 May 2020 and is accessed via the Health Surrey website: healthysurrey.org.uk/virtualwellbeing
Those who are unable to access online services can continue to seek emotional wellbeing support through a free, 24 hour confidential helpline on 0808 802 5000 (in high demand periods, an answerphone service may be in place) or by SMS Text 07537 432411 (staffed Monday to Friday 9am-2pm).
