Wellbeing Coordinators help people to be active in managing their own wellbeing, health and care, and to improve their experience of care and support in the community. Wellbeing Torbay is delivered by Age UK and Brixham Does Care.
Tim’s Story – This film was co-produced with Tim, whose story was the main focus of this film. Age UK Torbay, Ageing Well Torbay and Tim all came together for the filming and editing of this video, where Tim could decide what he wanted featured in this video, explaining the impact that Shaun, and other Wellbeing Coordinators, have had on his life.
Age UK is the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. The over-60s is the fastest-growing group in society and there are more of us than ever before. Ageing is not an illness, but it can be challenging. At Age UK we provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire and support older people.
Brixham Does Care is a registered befriending charity founded in 1978, which attempts to combat loneliness, isolation and despair. We offer support to people of all ages and client groups in communities.
