PEOPLE KEEPING WELL SERVICES

Directory of services in Sheffield (link)

ABSTRACT

This evaluation looked at the effectiveness of one component of the People Keeping Well (PKW) Programme: the brief intervention provided by Community Support Workers (CSWs) to identify people at risk, who had non-medical issues, and link them with a range of services in Sheffield. The main message is that the success of the CSW service depends on being able to connect people to longer term peer support.
