Health and wellbeing
Our exciting programme of activities focuses on improving physical activity levels, healthy eating and mental wellbeing.
Our current projects include:
This programme supports people’s wellbeing, developing personalised programmes to help them to get back into employment and other activities, including volunteering.
- Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities
This free 13-week programme is for parents with children aged 2–18. The course aims to increase people’s confidence and skills in parenting, and to achieve a positive change in family relationships.
- Wellbeing roadshows
We visit communities across London, offering advice and information on how people can improve their wellbeing, and we give a taster of some Activate London projects. We also tell them how they can get involved in our community programmes, such as Net Worx, which offers free computer classes.
- Wellbeing through encouragement
This project targets isolated people and encourages them to get involved in creative activities to help improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
- Young Leaders United for Health and Wellbeing
These courses train young leaders to help other young people make the right decisions and choose healthy lifestyles.
