If you would like help to be active but don’t know where to start, then the Social Prescribing for Physical Inactivity Service could be for you. We know that becoming physically active can have a positive impact on physical health and emotional wellbeing and this service offers 1:1 support from an experienced worker to help get you moving. We work at your pace, helping you to set realistic goals and find suitable activities – your social prescriber can even accompany you to classes and activities until you feel confident enough to attend on your own.

If you’re feeling low or isolated, our popular art groups may offer a solution. Some of the benefits people have experience are improving self-confidence, making new friends, and learning new skills and methods of self-expression. Although anybody is welcome, this activity is aimed at people with mild to moderate mental health needs.
Check out a video we made about Art Ease here.
It costs only £1. Please contact Sue Cooke for more information, on 0117 377 2255.Referral
Do you want to become a healthier woman, but feel you need some support to make changes? Perhaps you want more control over your eating habits, to give up smoking or simply to become happier and de-stress – if so, this may be the right group for you. You’ll meet a health worker to indentify a few achievable goals, and then join the group to participate in weekly activities and talks, which have a different focus each week. We are friendly, accepting and mutually supportive, and we also offer taster sessions if you are unsure but want to try it out.
It costs £1 and runs in term time only, and you can call Sally Clements on 0017 903 0024 for more information or use the form below.Referral
