Health & Wellbeing
Our Health and Wellbeing, Positive Minds and Learning Disabilities and Difficulties area has something for everyone from one-off workshops introducing new topics, to longer courses where you can hone your skills over several sessions. The programme offers learners the opportunity to develop new skills, attitudes and social relationships that will enable them to lead healthier lives.
Courses are designed to support learners to make healthier lifestyle choices and use a range of wellbeing tools and strategies to enhance their health and mental wellbeing.
All courses are delivered in a safe environment to connect with others, develop positive relationships and provide links to other local community activities and groups.
Come along and try something new!
