The story so far

South Hams Area Wellbeing or SHAW is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to help enable and educate local individuals to be resilient in their own wellbeing.

It is all about compassionate communities connecting local people of all generations with each other and with organisations, practitioners and agencies that can support and facilitate resilience with the main aim of improving lifestyle, knowledge, happiness and health.

Social prescribing – how it works

You can contact us through your GP surgery or other appropriate healthcare professionals. Our community connectors will arrange an appointment with you to discuss your personal aims and goals.

It’s about what matters to you, not what’s the matter with you.

The connector will introduce you to appropriate individuals, activities, organisations and will then have a follow-up support meeting with you a few weeks later.

Further meetings will be set up as needed with a view to you being self sufficient within an agreed timeframe.
