What is Living Better all about?

Living Better is a website pulling information together for West Somerset residents to:

  • Act as a triage point to help point you in the right direction for your health and well-being concerns.
  • Speed up the referral process to get you the right support efficiently and quickly.
  • Reduce pressure on Doctor’s surgeries by offering alternative community-led solutions where appropriate.
  • Help you take charge of becoming and staying healthy and feeling well by giving you the tools to find the services you need.
  • Connect you with local organisations and services that can offer you tailored support with the Living Better Services Directory.
