Rise & Shine

The Service

The Rise and Shine Service operates in partnership with Elmore Community Services. It provides support to people working towards a specific goal that may be suitable for a brief intervention. The project addresses the increased need for mental health services due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

What can we help with?

Specific issues with housing, benefits and social isolation particularly in response to the impact of Covid-19. Support can be provided for a few sessions or for up to six months.
For example:

  • Improving mental wellbeing and enabling recovery
  • Confidence building and improving self-esteem
  • Providing support around housing, money, benefits, or debt
  • Providing support and tools to enable people to build links within their community to prevent isolation and loneliness
  • Acting as an advocate to ensure people’s voices are heard
  • Providing information and assistance to enable people to be a part of their local communities, including employment, education, volunteering and training opportunities
  • Working with people to help them learn or improve practical life skills
  • Supporting residents to make positive and healthy choices about lifestyle such as exercise, healthy eating, stopping smoking
  • Supporting people at court hearings, assessments, and tribunals

Who is this service for?

Adults who have physical or mental health issues regardless of diagnosis or cluster score. You will be seeking support to address a specific need such as housing applications, benefit support and social inclusion and so on.

How do we work?

The service is a brief intervention service open to people across Oxfordshire to support people with a specific goal for up to 6 months.
