What is Adult Community Support?

Adult Community Support (ACS) is a free service to help people recover from mild to moderate mental health conditions in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area.
We offer support to help people find what is important for them and what a meaningful life would look like. For somebody this will mean having time to talk with our recovery trained staff; for others it will mean exploring creative and outdoors activities with like-minded people in a caring and supportive environment.  We want to help each and every one to find their own way to manage their symptoms, regaining control of their life and learning new ways to live the life they want.


The service is based on the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and CHIME– a set of simple guiding principles proven to improve our everyday wellbeing:

  • Connect with other people
  • Be physically active
  • Learn new skills
  • Give to others
  • Pay attention to the present moment



Who is Adult Community Support for?

Adults from the age of 25 living in the borough of Great Yarmouth and Waveney and experiencing anxiety, low mood, depression and other forms of mild to moderate mental ill health.

We enable people living with mental ill health to achieve their potential by building self-confidence, self-esteem and self-determination leading to improved general and mental health, wellbeing and connecting with the individual’s community.
