The Essex Wellbeing Service supports all Essex residents with easy access and referrals to all the wellbeing services they need. The Service is commissioned by Essex County Council and delivered by Provide CIC in partnership with Priority Digital Health.
Our vision is that people of Essex will live healthy lives and are supported in making healthy lifestyle choices. Our Lifestyle Services which include stop smoking and general lifestyle support aim to:
- Deliver free personalised support tailored to your needs
- Promote independance
- Deliver excellent customer experience
- Deliver an easy accessible service with a range of contact options
- Work in partnership with other organisations to enhance the service we provide
- Link with other community needs and assets
The services operates from 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 2pm on Saturdays. As a temporary measure against the spread of Covid-19, we have suspended all face to face appointments until further notice. The service will continue to operate clinics but by telephone only. If you have any questions or would like to make a referral contact the team today.
Working Well is a free programme that delivers health promotion advice and support services to small, medium and large workplaces in the private, public and voluntary sectors across Essex.
We will work with your organisation to promote and foster an environment of health and wellbeing. We will train your staff to become Workplace Health Champions who will deliver a range of healthy lifestyle programmes and activities.
We work in partnership with a wide range of local employers and business support agencies including: local Councils, Hospital Trusts, Community Health Providers, Walking for Health, the British Heart Foundation, Diabetes groups and MacMillan Cancer Care, Active Essex and Living Safe and Well Board.
We coordinate requests and referrals for support with essential everyday tasks and connect them to our volunteers. First mobilised in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the service continues to support vulnerable adults across Essex as they adjust to the new normal.
If you are in need of support for everyday tasks our volunteers are able to help with shopping, gardening, collecting medicines, befriending on the phone or on Facebook and much more. And we know that many people are too proud or unaware of our service so if you know someone that you would like to refer to receive support we're here to help too.
And if you'd like to volunteer with us we have lots of volunteering opportunities to support people in a variety of ways, whether you're able to get about in the car or public transport or whether you'd prefer to help from home.

It can be hard sometimes to find the help you need as a parent, whatever the age of your children or as the child of an elderly parent. Our community navigators have all the knowledge at their finger tips to help with practical including financial, emotional and social care support and if they can't help they know where they can find it.
They'll help you navigate your way through the many local organisations who can help and make sure you're put in touch with the right organisation for you.
