Salford charity Langworthy Cornerstone has appointed a support worker as their new ‘Well-being Coach’.
Daniel Shenton has previously worked at the community center. He has now returned to help residents with physical and social activity.
His focuses will include low mood, weight issues, smoking and alcohol related issues.
The service is free and available to anyone that lives in Langworthy, Ordsall, Seedley, Claremont or Weaste.
Langworthy Cornerstone Chief Officer John Phillips explains: “The aim of the center is to improve the health and well-being of the people of Salford and particularly those of Seedley and Langworthy.
“We do this by having a range of well-being workers based under one roof. We hope to provide an easily accessible and coordinated service for Salford residents seeking support.”
Dan has joined an existing team of health and well-being support workers based at the centre.
According to the Salford Government ward profiles, Langworthy has the highest number of hospital admissions due to alcohol in Salford.
The area also has the second highest number of smokers of all wards in Salford, as well as higher hospital admissions due to long term conditions.
The Langworthy Cornerstone centre provides a wide range of activities and services for local people, focusing on physical as well as mental health.
