Health Promoting Homes Success

Our Health Promoting Homes programme combines personal development, healthy food choices and exercise to encourage and empower people to have a healthier lifestyle.

This years programme saw 15 ladies come through an amazing journey of confidence building, friendship making and up-skilling. As a result of the programme we have 5 people returning to education, a peer led social group and individuals offering their time on a voluntary basis.

The 12 week course tackled the issues highlighted through arts and crafts, group work, reflection and sharing experiences and skills.

The Peninsula has a range of barriers that can make healthier choices more difficult including poor transport links, expensive local shops and isolation; impacting on motivation and mood. Together we can, as a community tackle and overcome these issues.
