Do you want to enhance your resilience through these difficult times, rediscover strengths and increase your ability to cope?
Managing a long term illness (whether it be your physical or mental health) can be stressful, tiring and incredibly lonely at the best of times. If you’re currently self-isolating and trying to cope, let us introduce you to the Digital HOPE Programme. The online version of the six-week course provides digital support for people with a long-term condition, helping them to cope better, feel more in control and be more resilient. We are looking to support people with a range of long-term conditions.
The course will last for six weeks and is FREE to enrol on to. We ask that you commit to a minimum of 2 hours per week, at a time that suits you, and you have access to the internet via Smartphone, Tablet or PC.
Register your interest in HOPE by completing the booking form below.
Take that first step and come along and find your HOPE!
You can self-refer by filling in the form on the NHS website, or by contacting the HOPE coordinator. Be aware they will need your full name and contact information and the dates you would like to attend (these cannot be promised as courses will be booked on a first come first served basis). You can also be referred to the programme by your GP or a health professional through the HOPE coordinator.
