Route2wellbeing is an online directory to enable members of the public and health and social care professionals to find the many sources of support within Sandwell and Birmingham.
It makes information about local community-based services easy to find through categories such as addiction support, furniture, carers’ support, transport, befriending and foodbank.
The website is the fruits of partnership work between Sandwell Council Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) and the Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). It was created as part of a wider pilot programme of activity in late 2012 and early 2013 to foster better understanding between the voluntary and communitysector and local GPs and health professionals.
Route2wellbeing allows users to find the services nearest them by keying in their postcode. Information is stored on a service by service basis, meaning that organisations can have multiple listings, with each service and different location or point of access displayed for the user.
The site is designed to help point patients to voluntary and community organisations and to help find non-medical support and guidance in addition to that which the health service can offer them.
