Self Help/Nottinghamshire

coldWe are keen to help patients improve on self help and hope that the following information will offer some insight into that.

Self Help Connect UK

Self Help Connect UK is the new national arm of Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a unique organisation which helps create, support and promote self help groups.

We have more than 30 years of experience in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire with an enviable reputation for helping people to start and grow self help groups to improve their health and wellbeing. We also bridge the gap between these groups and health and social care professionals.

Building on the successful model we have developed during our 30 years in Nottinghamshire, we were asked by the Department of Health to use our knowledge and expertise to support other areas of the UK. While Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire remains a beacon of best practice, our national arm - Self Help Connect UK -  now fulfils contracts in different locations in the UK.
