Regular quality exercise can significantly improve lives, regardless of an individual’s starting point or background, and we believe that there is a programme or activity with suitable, achievable goals for all.

MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING

We provide and promote physical activity, mindful relaxation, peer exchange and support as powerful tools of self-management for mental health and overall wellbeing.

 

Our core programmes of fitness to feel better provide and promote physical activity, mindful relaxation and peer exchange and support as powerful tools for the recovery, self-management and early intervention/prevention of common mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, chronic stress and low mood. This blended approach to health and mental wellbeing is delivered in our inviting setting and welcoming atmosphere.

We currently run a programme called Well & Connected at Home which runs until September 2021. W&C at Home is split into 2 programme varieties: Active Focus (12-18 years & Creative Focus (16- up).
