Health and physical activity come hand in hand and we know the importance of preventing physical and mental health issues later in life as Inactivity has one of the biggest financial impacts on the National Health Service.
Active Communities work alongside various local health campaigns to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.
We support local health programmes including; dementia friendly activities, diabetes prevention exercise, MacMillan move more physical activity during and after cancer treatment and active ageing initiatives. Our staff across local facilities are trained to encourage everyone who wants to improve their health into an opportunity for them.
We at Active Communities Worcester are committed to promoting equality, inclusiveness and anti-stigma around mental health by ensuring our club is:
Caring- we encourage an environment which displays kindness and concern for others
Aware- we have club members and staff who are well informed around mental health conditions and will promote ways to support this
Listening- we will give attention and respond to participants who reach out for support
Mindful - we are aware of mental health conditions and its impact on everyone
