Health & Wellbeing

As a not-for-profit, social enterprise, we work for the benefit of everyone – the community, our members, partners and staff.

Our aim is simple – to help people be healthy, live longer and have fun.

We re-invest any financial surplus back into our services and work with partners to unlock funding, allowing us to offer a range of community programmes and health initiatives so that everyone has the opportunity to lead healthy lives.
