Local charity, Spark, with support from the NHS Symphony Programme, have launched a new website
to promote wellbeing in South Somerset.

The new site, Wellbeing South Somerset, features a comprehensive directory of support, where
people can search through hundreds of local services, groups, and activities that could improve their
wellbeing. It also includes health-boosting self-management tools and tips, and information on local
volunteering opportunities.

Matt Day, Health & Wellbeing Partnerships Lead at Spark, said:
"We're really excited to launch the Wellbeing South Somerset site. The directory, which is based on
Health Connections Mendip's successful model, will be the missing link that connects people with a
huge range of community resources that could help them feel better, from lunch clubs and walking
groups, to housing and debt advice."

The new site has been funded by the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group.

Community groups and charities who would like who would like to submit a listing to be included in
the Directory can email support@sparksomerset.org.uk
