The Housing, Health and Wellbeing group within Sedgemoor District Council has funding to support communities to deliver health and wellbeing projects. We are inviting communities to bid for funds through the Community Health Fund to help improve the health of our residents.
Health Walks are designed to attract people of all ages who want to improve their health, meet new people as well as explore their local environment. Walking groups are led by trained Volunteer Walk Leaders who have reached the standard of delivery set by the national Walking for Health initiative.
Our lifestyles can be more unhealthy than we think. One You and the accompanying 'how are you' quiz and apps are here to help you get back to a healthier you. Also find out more about free NHS Health Checks.
This scheme is overseen by the 'MOVE' group hosted by Public Health at Somerset County Council and encourages people living with long term illnesses or injuries to maintain and/or improve their health through a personally tailored exercise programme in an accredited leisure centre locally.
