Network of Linked Organisations
Sid Valley Help has a network of local health and social care organisations. We help them to work together and to expand their services to meet needs. A list of these Linked Organisations can be downloaded by clicking here.
Social events for working age adults
There is currently little support in Sidmouth for people who are lonely and under 60 years of age. These may be people who live alone, who are recently bereaved or separated, have recently moved here, have a long term illness or a disability or who have maybe lost their confidence to go out and meet people. We run several groups to meet these needs and details can be found here.
Improving young people's mental health
We have just launched an appeal to raise £10,000 in match-funding to bring the Headlight project currently running in Axminster to the Sid Valley. Headlight provides local early help services and details can be downloaded here.
