Introducing Self Help Connect UK

Self Help Connect UK is the national division of Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a unique organisation which helps create, support and promote self help groups.



We have more than 30 years of experience in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, with an enviable reputation for helping people to start and grow self help groups to improve their health and wellbeing. We also bridge the gap between these groups and health and social care professionals.

Building on the successful model we have developed during our 30 years in Nottinghamshire, we were asked by the Department of Health to use our knowledge and expertise to support other areas of the UK. While Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire remains a beacon of best practice, our national arm - Self Help Connect UK - now fulfils contracts in different locations in the UK.

Over the last few years, we have successfully supported Shropshire, Telford, Worcestershire and Stoke-on-Trent to systemise their approach to their local self help group sector. We are currently working with partner agencies in Leicestershire and London to help them achieve the same goal.
