VCS Wellbeing network and hubs

Wellbeing network logo

The Wellbeing Network (WBN) is a free, open access network of VCS led, locality-based Hubs and Out of Hours services

Whatever challenges people you support are facing; our Wellbeing Hubs are here to help. Our staff of trained professionals provide a person-centred support plan to help people on their journey to a happier and healthier life. From Keighley to Tong, our six independent Hubs provide rapid access to free specialist advice and support.

We provide a range of non-clinical provision:

  • Mental Well-being
  • Welfare Benefits - including housing/debt/food and fuel poverty
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Carers Support
  • Refugee and Asylum Seeker support
  • Physical Health
  • Substance Misuse

What's on?

The wellbeing hubs host a wide variety of specialist sessions and groups based around their core offerings. Some of these are drop-ins (but calling ahead to make sure a group is running is suggested - especially over bank holidays etc.) and other sessions/groups need a booking or referral.
