Why use GENIE?
Your life your choices
Genie will help you think about, and discuss with a community worker, what are the activities, groups, and support/resources that are available locally and that you may want to link up with. By talking to a community worker about your interests, needs and the people that are important to you, Genie will make suggestions about what activities, groups and support might interest you.
Improves your health and well-being
Genie has been scientifically proven to improve health and quality of life for people who have diabetes, breathing problems, mental health problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, or other long-term health conditions. Genie can also be helpful to people who are at different transition points (like moving to a new area for example) or who would like to connect to more people and activities.
Helps you see changes and make changes over time
If you want to, you can save your Genie account and come back to it to see how your network changes over time and what new local activities might interest you.
Built by experts, provided by community-based workers
Genie has been built and tested by experts in health sciences to make a tool that is easy to use and that gives lots of benefits. It is best when used with a community worker but you can also use it on your own. You can also discuss activities that you find using Genie with people around you such as family members, friends, colleagues, or members of hobby or community groups.
How does Genie work?
The Genie tool guides you through four stages: firstly, to map and reflect on your social network, then it uses a short questionnaire to identify enjoyable activities and the location of each activity is then displayed on a map together with contact details. Lastly, relevant online resources are explored.
