items on table

Health Trainers is a national programme based at Tenants Hall in Middleton. It addresses the health and wellbeing needs of local people.

Holistic Health Trainers offer personal, structured support to people experiencing a range of challenges to their leading a happy and healthy life. Challenges may include social isolation, low income, debt, domestic violence, lack of social and family support networks.

Holistic Health Trainers are workers recruited from local communities with the skills, knowledge, contacts and empathy required to help individuals identify their needs and possible solutions, accompanying them on the journey to improved wellbeing. Peer support from others in similar situations and facing similar challenges is provided through self help support and activity groups.

Health for All helps establish groups, supporting them to independence and sustainability through access to small grants for running costs. Trained volunteers assist both individuals and groups.

Groups include community choirs, walking groups, arts and crafts, soft furnishings, gardening, woodwork and many more!
