How is Ways to Wellness set up?
Ways to Wellness Foundation is a registered charity. We are building an innovation hub that brings people together to tackle health inequalities across the North East and North Cumbria. You can find out more about our shared vision and values here.
Ways to Wellness Ltd is the Foundation’s trading arm, which acts as the central contract management body for delivery of our social prescribing service for people with long term conditions. This role includes: holding the contract with Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG); holding contracts with service provider organisations who employ link workers and deliver the service; and overseeing and administering the patient referral process and database.
Ways to Wellness Ltd also raised finance from and held contracts with social investors whose investment paid for the cost of the service in the early years, ahead of our performance measures being achieved.
