Wellbeing & Outreach

The mission of the Wellbeing Outreach Team (WOT) is to help increase health awareness and shift the mindset of the community towards being open and feeling empowered to seek support for health and life challenges.

 

Services that we offer include:

  • Health awareness activities

  • Help with the management of those with long-term conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, mental health etc

  • General health assessments

  • Occupational Therapy (OT) advice

  • One-to-one social support

  • Rehabilitation support following discharge from hospital

  • Befriending those who require the extra support

  • Social / Housing advice and support

  • Welfare and Benefit entitlement support

 

The listed services will be available to all members of our community with extra support offered to Our Elders in the community. 

 

The increasing pressure on the health and social system in the UK means those without guidance can easily slip through the cracks and not receive what they require or are entitled to. There is therefore a need to support our members in navigating through these systems and do our best to exact positive change.

 

Alhamdullilah, Allah has blessed our community with many skilled individuals who also have the desire to give back to the community. As a result, WOT is able to sustain itself as the skill mix means that members of the community can always be referred to those best able to tend to their specific needs. We also have the complete support of the youth which means new energy and enthusiasm will be in constant supply. We hope this will also inspire the youth to aspire to have careers such as those in healthcare which have the potential for so much barakah.

 

This in the long run would help make our community more health conscious, caring and compassionate towards each other.
