We are delighted to have launched five new projects to improve health and wellbeing across Wales, under the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity fund, which is part of the Levelling Up agenda.
In addition to the building of a 'green health hub', we will be offering a wide range of programmes, one off sessions and volunteering opportunities. Nature crafts, immersive experiences and connection with green spaces will be used as preventative health care measures and to show participants how to improve their wellbeing.
Alison Moore, the South Wales Coordinator said “we’re really excited to receive the Shared Prosperity Funding, this enables us to reach out to more communities to support their health and wellbeing, as well as their learning and skills in nature and the environment.”
