The Dimensions Tool is a free and interactive online tool. It gives tailored recommendations to support a person's health and well being needs.
Individuals or parents and carers of children can go through the dimensions of health and well being outlined in the tool and rate themselves or their child against each. An individualised report will be produced, highlighting areas of most need and providing self-care information on those subjects. The aim of self-care information is to take the hard work out of searching the internet or library, by collating trustworthy information and local resources into one place.
