Living it Up is an online supported self-management service for people with long term health and care conditions.
With over 23,000 ‘signed up’ users and members, Living it Up (LiU) has now successfully moved from its innovative development phase into an early stage service.
Funded by Scottish Government, LiU has been co-designed with local partners and communities across Scotland to help address the increasing demands on health and care services.
Current evidence from LiU identifies:
- It is generating preventative behaviours in its users, including a three times self-reported instance of using care services; six times higher self-reported instance of community volunteering;
- LiU active users have greater levels of adherence to preventative care and health routines; more appropriate food selection and diet choices; and more resilient coping strategies for the care of their health;
- It generates a minimum of £1.37 return for every £1 invested even at its early stage of service delivery.
- It supports the introduction of digital health and wellbeing products into the statutory health and wellbeing sector in Scotland.
