Your Wellbeing

We believe that everyone has a right to a sense of wellbeing, to feel comfortable, safe, and in their best health. How you maintain your wellbeing will be personal to you. Sometimes, everyone needs some help with their wellbeing.

Check your wellbeing

Wellbeing is about feeling comfortable in body and mind. When we are feeling well, our life can open up in ways that are meaningful to us. When we are not feeling well, things like work, education, and hobbies can suffer.

Everyone is different

Wellbeing is different for everyone. We each have different physical, emotional, social, and practical needs, and these will change depending on our circumstances. It’s really helpful to check your wellbeing with someone else, such as speaking with our friendly Time to Talk team or one of our trained counsellors. Or try a new activity with the help of our Deaf Get Active team or Countryside Mobility scheme.

We also share useful links to videos and information from organisations who work with us to provide tips and techniques to help you relax and help with feelings of stress or worry. Explore this web page or contact our friendly Hub team for more information and support .

Feel valued

Being part of a community is a great way to improve your wellbeing, and we love to include people at Living Options. You could consider volunteering with us, or having your say on disability issues by joining the Devon Disability Network. Or maybe you’d like to have some fun by fundraising for us?

I didn’t know what to expect or if they would be able to help me. When I got there it was fabulous. The equipment you can try out and hire makes all the difference.
