Engage Somerset

new community project - inspiring healthy change in Chard

February 14 2022

Engage Somerset is a 6 month project funded by UK Government Community Renewal fund.

The project is designed to support people’s wellbeing with a focus on those not in work including those not actively seeking work. The project aims to put together a range of support for each individual to improve the way in which they feel about themselves and therefore improve their sense of wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem.

A particular focus will be on moving more and a range of new activities will be available to you because we all enjoy different things. If you commit to the programme a FREE Fit Bit will be offered to use during the project and to continue your journey after.

Please see below for a timetable of activites available but not restricted to, for a full centre timetable please click here.

You will have support from one of our health advisors to tailor you experience at the leisure centre, along with access to swimming, classes and the fitness suite for FREE with our activity passes.
