Opened in 2019, the Health and Wellbeing Centre at Dumfries House provides a range of holistic services to the local community. Services are GP and patient-led, with referrals from primary and secondary care providers. Run by The Prince’s Foundation, it provides an Integrated Health and Wellbeing Programme, with the centre also open to health charities and other organisations.
The organisation is running a range of health care programmes for the community free of charge, such as Chronic Pain, Obesity and Weight Management, and Mental health courses. These are open to anyone in Ayrshire.
Although based at the wonderful Dumfries House Estate at the health and wellbeing centre, this location might also be problematic to people who would like to join but do not have the means and ways to get to the estate since there is no public transport links.
Volunteer drivers would support both us as a foundation but more importantly the participants.
Volunteer drivers transport people from their homes to Dumfries House and back to their residences, using their own vehicles. The volunteer drivers are reassured that the participants will be assessed that they are fit to get in and out of the vehicles on their own.
The different wellbeing programmes run in between 6 to 12 weeks with morning and/or afternoon sessions.
Each session lasts for 3 hours and volunteer drivers can either opt to leave and return the estate or else enjoy a walk in the grounds and a complimentary tea or coffee.
