Supporting young adults to self-care (proactive work)

The London Clinical Senate Forum and the work of the London Health Commission identified self-care in young adults as a major priority for the health system in London. The Senate ran engagement events in different community settings and provided training and support for young people to facilitate these, which not only built an evidence base but also aided a new approach to self-care for young adults. The report introduces a new commissioning framework to support young adults to self-care, particularly those with long-term conditions. ‘The Well Centre’ was identified as the future to support self-care in young adults within the community.
