Added at 09:09 on 02 April 2024

JOY is a free health and wellbeing support website, is set to be launched tomorrow (Friday 29 March) to support people living and working in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland (LLR).  Funded by the local NHS, Joy combines services provided by the NHS, local authorities, and the voluntary and community sector all in one place. 

Joy will offer a diverse range of categories tailored to meet individuals' needs. From fitness and art classes to carer support, diabetes self-help groups, food banks, counselling, and Age UK services, the exciting new website will provide a comprehensive array of services. These services are designed to bolster the communities of LLR, setting Joy apart as a unique and engaging non-clinical health and wellbeing support service.

Rachna Vyas, Chief Operating Officer at the NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland, said: “We are delighted to be launching the Joy website today, bringing together local support, in a single place, at the touch of a button.

“We particularly want to make it easier for people with the most need to find better help, whether it’s support for their mental health, wanting to be more physically active, or just finding support groups close to where they live. Our ambition is that Joy becomes a way that everybody connects, resulting in better mental health and wellbeing across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland.”

Joy is a free website for everyone to use and will be available at: just follow the link, add your postcode and start searching for local services.
