People Like Us (PLUS)

People Like Us (PLUS) is a service that works across Worcestershire to support adults of all ages who are experiencing loneliness or isolation. PLUS enables individuals to connect with others and supports them to become more active and engaged in their communities. The service is delivered by ONSIDE with their two delivery partners Worcester Community Trust and Simply Limitless.

Here2Help

Here2Help provides support for people of all ages and is available for residents to access information, advice, tools, guidance and local support to them or others in the local community based on their needs.

Worcestershire Healthy Minds

Worcestershire Healthy Minds supports people experiencing more common mental health problems, such as worry, low mood and depression which can affect all of us at some time. You can contact the service yourself directly and talk to our team about how you’re feeling, and they can help you access help and advice. Healthy Minds runs online courses, group sessions and more traditional talking therapy and they can also help you access a wider range of support available in your local community.
