Wild swimming and peer support feature in two new self management films created by Moray Wellbeing Hub.

Inspirational personal stories of self management provide tips and hope that we can live our fullest lives.  Two new short films from Moray, on wild swimming and the impact of peer-support, are great examples with a fresh new take we think you will love.

“I loved seeing folk doing what made them well… the filming is beautiful too. I found it soothing to watch and seeing the Moray outdoors made me want to get out there!” Community member feedback.

Supported through the 2019 self management funded project ‘Peer Connectors’, Champions at Moray Wellbeing Hub share their experiences amongst the beautiful Morayshire outdoors, encouraging us to CHIME together.

CHIME, standing for Connection Hope Identity Meaning and Empowerment, sums up the key things we all need for good health. This evidence-based approach is something Moray Wellbeing Hub have used to frame all their activity for some time.

They created these films to inspire more people to try CHIME in action and learn about their funded work over the last year. This included creating a new Community Connector role for Champions who can walk alongside fellow community members in need of mutual support.

Both films are hosted on the Moray Wellbeing Hub website (this link will take you away from our website), alongside other short films with their Champions. These include challenging stigma in health and social care with See Me, understanding coproduction and their neurodiversity campaign.

The Peer Connectors project was originally funded through the ALLIANCE Self Management Fund. Applications for the current round of the fund are now open.
