Diane was referred to the wellbeing service by her local housing association and says it’s turned her life around. She says:
"I feel a 1000 times better as a result of working with the Wellbeing Worker – my depression is lifting, I’ve been doing more around the house and I’ve even been on holiday with my carer.”
