A new online community directory, Live Well Telford, has been launched this week, offering a single point of information and advice to help children, young people and adults live well in the borough.

Live Well Telford is an all-age directory, supported by Telford and Wrekin Council and brings together in one place wide-ranging information about services, activities and support in the local area.

This includes advice on staying healthy, continued learning opportunities and where to go for help to tackle issues such as social isolation and loneliness.

Councillor Andy Burford, Cabinet member for Health and Social Care, said: “We are very lucky in Telford to have a huge range of support available to help improve the quality of life for local people. 

“It’s great to have a directory that offers all this information in one place so that people can easily choose services and activities that suit their needs and lifestyle.”

Key features of the Live Well Telford directory include: 

  • Users being able to print, email and share service information via social media.
  • Search for services via key words, post code or area to find out what is available in the local community.
  • ‘Suggest a service’ function for members of the public to suggest services running in the community that are not on the directory.
  • CQC ratings visible on services that provide care, for example, home care agencies and nursing homes.

The council is calling on community groups and voluntary organisations to register on the new directory. Services can provide and update their own information and will be sent regular reminders to ensure that the information they give is relevant and up to date.

To register on the directory go to Livewell.telford.gov.uk and select the ‘Request a Log in’ link.
