Ways to Wellness is a project based around improving health and wellbeing in the Westcliff community. We have been awarded 5 years funding from Big Lottery which will see us moving from our existing space in the Westcliff precinct into the new community building - The Arc.
The Ways to Wellness Project has emerged from our previous Big Lottery funded project (Listen Include and Build) which focused on getting people into employment and family learning activities.
As a result of consultation with the community, it was identified that people on Westcliff estate experience significantly higher incidence of ill-health leading to life-limiting mental and/or physical health conditions. Ways to Wellness seeks to address these inequalities; identifying and building on the collective and individual strengths of local people.
The differences this project aims to make are:
- People will have improved mental health and well-being
- Increased social interaction between people and groups on the Westcliff estate
- Increased participation in volunteering leading to local people having increased self-confidence and being able to make healthier lifestyle choices and promote healthy living to others
