Social Care and Counselling Services

What we do

YOU provides services to support those with mental health issues and disabilities, however, sometimes they overlap, which is where our Social Care and Counselling Services come in. These services support those in need who would like to connect to their local community, therefore these services work alongside individuals and their circles of support in order to build their confidence and their independence so that individuals can live the life they want to.

Social Prescribing Portsmouth

Social Prescribing is a way of linking people who commonly access Primary Care settings with non-medical sources of support within their community. It provides a more holistic response to people’s needs, to improve people’s wellbeing and health, and impacts the wider determinants of health such as debt and housing.

From Monday 5 November 2018, The new YOU Trust service – Social Prescribing Portsmouth will be launched to support people who are experiencing financial pressures, social isolation or lack of confidence which is adversely affecting their health and wellbeing.

Any member of staff within GP Practices can refer, as well as Community Nurses, Community Matrons, Mental Health Services, Physiotherapists, MSK, Talking Change, Occupational Therapists, Health Visitors, School nurses, Acute Visiting Service, Hospital staff (for Portsmouth residents), Long Term Condition Hubs and Community Health services.

As a health professional you can refer via your normal referral route, or download the referral form here and send it securely to socialprescribing@theyoutrust.org.uk.cjsm.net.

My Time Service for Carers

My Time Service for Carers

We know that caring can be challenging – and that making time for yourself can be difficult.

My Time is a new service that helps carers find time for themselves – whether that’s time to attend appointments, family events or special occasions.

My Time isn’t a traditional service. Our staff and volunteers are flexible and will work with you to create a plan of activities and outings that your loved one might like to do on a good day – like a trip out for lunch – and alternatives for quiet days – like trying out a new craft or game at home.

We know that caring can be challenging, but we also know that time away from your caring role gives you the chance to recharge your batteries. Our aim is to make that time something to look forward to – a highlight for both you and the person you care for.

Contact the My Time office to arrange a home visit to discuss how we can help.

Call: 023 9206 5504
