Community and voluntary organisation, Watford and Three Rivers Trust (W3RT) looks to Elemental to support its local wellbeing programme by enabling local people to refer themselves into local services and support.
Alongside Elemental’s core platform which, will enable the Trust to measure and evaluate outcomes for individual service users, W3RT’s service will focus on the self refer feature, to encourage local residents to refer themselves into the local services that best meet their needs.
Launching this month, the initiative aims to enable and empower local people to navigate their own way to the local social and wellbeing support available in their area.
Jennifer Neff, CEO and Co-Founder of Elmental Software
“Putting in place a range of ways for local people to refer into social prescribing support is an important way to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from the wide range of services and activities that are available in their local area that could boost their health and wellbeing.
“We’re excited to be able to support the great social prescribing work that is already underway in Watford and Three Rivers through our self-refer feature, which will offer another way for residents to be connected with their local social prescribing link workers and to choose the support that they feel best meets their needs. Together with the evaluation features of our platform, W3RT will be able to easily see and demonstrate the positive outcomes that local services are creating for individuals.”
Bob Jones, CEO of Watford and Three Rivers Trust
“We’ve been really impressed with the level of reporting that Elemental’s platform provides. This will be absolutely core to our approach going forward, we want to be able to understand the difference that local services are creating for individuals and how the support they are able to access through Elemental is improving their overall health and wellbeing.”
The project will be delivered in partnership with W3RT’s funders and up to 400 local community groups. It will support the ongoing work of the Trust, which has played a part in the development of local voluntary services for nearly 50 years, to encourage and support people to be active in their communities for the wellbeing of themselves and others.
