Health & Wellbeing Zone

We care about the physical and mental wellbeing of our Community and we recognise that there is a huge range of societal factors that affect this.
Good health and wellbeing brings many benefits for all of us. Healthier people tend to be happier, tend to play an active role and contribute to society and the economy through their families, local communities and workplaces.
The Health & well-being zone provides opportunities to improve Health & wellbeing by holding a number of activities that enable the community to engage in five ways to well-being.

CONNECT:

Community events, exercise classes, cooking, craft sessions, bingo, lunches, days out, and annual holidays.

BE ACTIVE:

Chair based exercises, walks, dancing.

TAKE NOTICE:

Community events, encouraging members of the group to be involved in the wider community, providing newspapers, magazines, and computers.

KEEP LEARNING:

GIVE:
