Hi, I’m Peter Simonson and I work as the Referral and Signposting Co-ordinator at the St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre. I’m here to help people engage with local health and wellbeing services and locally based non-clinical support services and activities. A person’s health and their ability to manage it is often influenced by a range of factors beyond the scope of NHS professionals. Issues such as employment, housing, debt and social isolation have been said to account for over 50% of the determinants of an individual’s health status.

The purpose of my role is to empower local people to self-manage their health and wellbeing and to build social connections in the community through signposting and referring them to appropriate locally based services and resources.

I’ll be working in partnership with local community and statutory bodies.  Organisations such as Ageing Better Camden, Hopscotch, Somers Town Community Association, London Borough of Camden, Healthwatch Camden and Camden NHS.

If you want to discuss how I may be able to help you please pop into the Living Centre on Tuesdays 2am-4pm, Wednesdays 10am-4pm, Fridays 10am-4pm. You can also call on 0207 380 0453 or email info@thelivingcentre.org
