In the NHS Room at Speldiburn

Wednesdays2 - 4 pm

This drop-in service offers information about health and care support in the isles, including voluntary groups as well as council and NHS services. Existing hubs located in Brae and Scalloway at the youth and community centres have been useful ways for folk to access a wide range of services and support.

At the Wellbeing Hub, they can help you with any issues you may have in relation to you or your family's wellbeing, or help you get in touch with the right organisation.

They'd also just love a chat!

The Hub room is always open, so feel free to pop along at any time the building is open and browse the leaflets available.
