Integrated Well-being Networks in Gwent

WHAT ARE INTEGRATED WELLBEING NETWORKS?​

Integrated Wellbeing Networks improve and strengthen wellbeing by connecting and enhancing community assets for people to build relationships and find the things that matter to them. There are four elements:

  1. Place-based collaboration

  2. Community-based Hubs

  3. People who deliver services and support

  4. Easy access to well-being Information

Integrated Wellbeing Networks work collectively to help sustain and improve wellbeing in our communities. 

 

HOW DID INTEGRATED WELLBEING NETWORKS START?

They start with what we already have; building on what’s strong, and working together with the unique strengths and assets that exist in our communities:

  • OUR PEOPLE - Their experience, relationships, knowledge and skills

  • OUR PLACES - Our healthy places and community assets

  • OUR PROVISION - The wellbeing support and activities provided by services and groups

Integrated Wellbeing Networks (IWNs) currently operate in selected areas in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Newport, Monmouthshire and Torfaen with work in those areas tailored appropriately to local priorities.
