We are a Healthy Living Centre in South Bradford, based on Tong Street and work across the South Bradford area; Holme Wood, Bierley, Wyke, Buttershaw, Gt. Horton, Queensbury. We are also an accredited training centre and we sometimes run courses for our volunteers and also for our service users to build confidence and pathways into employment.
Our projects are many and varied, but they all help reduce inequalities in health. We take referrals into our projects from Doctors, Nurses, other community groups and people who just contact us direct.
Examples of some of our projects: Wellbeing Cafe (for people with dementia and their carers), Connect Club for isolated over 50's, Take our tablet beginners computer course, several exercise sessions from active in ageing to bollywood, various cooking/nutrition programmes including cook & wean and weight management. Funding for our domestic abuse and alcohol work concludes in September.
n the summer holidays we run a holiday scheme for children living in Buttershaw.
ur funding to run projects comes from Public Health, Bradford/ Bradford Council/ the Lottery/ the People's Health Trust
We could not run our projects without volunteers who give so much to enable things to happen.
