    Did you know that people with learning difficulties die (on average) 20 years sooner than the rest of the population?

    We became committed to improving health when in 2002 six of our members died, they were all men and under 50 years old. Our Management Committee decided to do something about this and we started to look for funds to help us to promote healthy lifestyles.

    In 2009 we were successful is gaining a Big Lottery – Reaching Communities grant for our ‘Let’s Get Healthy’ project.

    With this grant support members we are supporting to have increased awareness of local health services, to live healthier, more active lives and to be active in contributing to local community debate about health. Project activities include health education –‘ Living a Healthy Life’ 10 session training programme, health checks, opportunities for healthy activities, an incentive scheme to encourage participation in for healthy activities, with a certificate awarded for 100 hours of healthy activity.
