Who is involved?

Living Well UK is helping to build “Living Well systems of support" that put people's strengths and lived experience at the centre and are designed to help people recover and stay well as part of their community. 

Living Well systems are now being co-produced in seven pioneering places, each creating their own version of a Living Well system.

 

Living Well systems of support are distinguishable by a set of key features. These have been embodied by Living Well sites in
different ways.

 

They prioritise working systemically in the following ways:
