Integrated Wellbeing Service (IWS) for 15-25yr olds

Noah’s Ark Centre is proud to be receiving funding from the Department for Health and Social Care’s CYP’s Mental Health Early Intervention Hubs fund, and excited to deliver our project; Integrated Wellbeing Service (IWS), to pilot a service providing young people aged 15-25yrs within the Halifax communities of Park and Ovenden, the opportunity to participate in a holistic range of integrated wellbeing interventions aimed at intervening early to support improvements and build resilience in their mental, emotional, and general wellbeing.

IWS will involve an offer of therapy/counselling, money advice, budgeting courses, housing support, food and activity related wellbeing interventions. IWS aims to provide early intervention support to those impacted by 'adverse childhood experiences’ and interrelated vulnerabilities. The delivery of interventions will be person-centred and young person led, enabled by Noah’s Ark Centre’s flexible and creative approach as well as the project’s ‘action research’ approach of collecting and incorporating feedback from young people, families and professionals to continually inform service planning and delivery. It will inclusively support young people who are NEET, SEND, care leavers and LGBTQ+.
