Healthy Communities

change 4 life cookery

The Healthy Communities team works with and supports community and self-help groups.

Using community development approaches the project works to identify health needs and help with advice, information, and setting up new physical activity, healthy eating and support initiatives in response.

Health for All has a long history of establishing and supporting a wide range of community groups, in the belief that bringing people out of their isolation enables the sharing of mutual support and friendship.

As groups draw individuals out of their isolation, so the networks run by Health for All draw groups out of their isolation and offer opportunities for the sharing of information and joint action.
