About SPOTWELLBEING CIC:

SPOTWELLBEING CIC is a community interest company offering a range of services. We set up the service in 2019 and now run one-to-one sessions and groups across Suffolk. The service is run by health professionals: Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist and technical instructor with support from our new administration and business support team member.

Our mission is to support people to have a good quality of life, doing activities that are meaningful to them through holistic, personalized partnership working.

We have a one-to-one service for people over 50 who require support to improve their wellbeing. People can expect to be contacted by a team member and seen at home for sessions. The length of service will depend on the individual and what they are working towards. We are holistic and will work with the person on whatever we are able to, to improve their wellbeing.

Our Health and wellbeing Groups are 90-minute sessions, once a week for six weeks. 2 of our team members lead 45 minutes of exercise, practice relaxation techniques, have a talk / discussion on a topic related to ageing well and then the group can socialize and get to know each other. The groups run across Suffolk. We also have a sustainability project linked to these groups – supporting communities to continue them independently.
