The impact of Covid-19 is continuing to affect communities across the UK, with new cases averaging at around 40,000 cases a day.
Available to support local people, the Stockton-on-Tees Resilience and Recovery Project (SRRP) is funded by the Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation to offer emotional and wellbeing support for those who are 18+ and affected by Covid-19, the pandemic, social isolation, shielding, long COVID and many more factors.
Andrea Love, Project Lead of the Stockton-on-Tees Resilience and Recovery Project, said: “We currently have the Stockton-on-Tees Covid-19 Community Champions that spread Public Health England’s key messages, whilst myth busting false information surrounding Covid-19, the pandemic and vaccinations.
“The new SRRP responds directly to the present impacts of Covid-19 and offers communities a lifeline of support and signposting networks to improve people’s physical and mental wellbeing.
“SRRP welcomes people to get in touch who may want advice and support related to Covid-19.”
Delivered by North East charity the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP), the new service will engage people through one to one and group support, resilience workshops and connect people with existing organisations to improve overall health and wellbeing.
Clients using SRRP will set their own goals to take at their own pace, whilst the team empower and motivate through specialist support.
No one has to suffer in silence with the impact of Covid-19. To find out more about the service, get in touch on SRRP@pcp.uk.net
