Community Anchors

Community anchors are services found in your local area which may help you manage your health and wellbeing.

You may be referred to visit a community anchor by your GP as a non-medical intervention for problems such as, loneliness, depression or anxiety. However, you don’t need to be referred and are free to visit your local centre whenever you like.

Community anchors can often be found in your local church or community centre and provide a wide-range of opportunities to improve your wellbeing.

The centres play host to a variety of clubs, classes, events and meet-ups which are suitable for older people in Wakefield district, and can help you to stay active and socialise with other like-minded individuals.

There are community anchors all over the district with each centre offering different services and activities for all ages.
