  • Supporting people living with, or who might be at risk of developing, long term conditions to be better able to self manage and/or reduce risk factors.
  • Supporting people who experience barriers to accessing health and social care support and services, due to geographical, social, or economic factors to feel better able to self manage through direct support or support to access services.
  • Supporting people who are waiting for a specialist health or social care intervention or rehabilitation support through enabling them to develop self management capabilities while awaiting treatment.
  • Supporting disabled young people or young people living with long term conditions or unpaid carers to understand the importance of self management and to develop skills which maximise their health and wellbeing.
