The HLC is committed to tackling health and wellbeing inequalities in the local community and Buckinghamshire area. We run different projects, which allow us to listen to the local people and wider community and put in place different projects to help answer their needs.
This group, in partnership with the National Lottery, provides a safe social space for women from minority groups to meet on a regular basis. We provide signposting to other services and organisations, guest speakers, a variety of arts and crafts and physical and mental wellbeing sessions.
The group runs across Aylesbury, High Wycombe and Chesham and is a regular weekly session.
Healthy Living and Healthy Eating
A three-phase project promoting Healthy Living and Healthy Eating covering the following areas:
Summer Launch Event | Planting and growing | Healthy eating workshop
The Garden Project is delivered in partnership with Aylesbury Garden Town and runs every Monday 1pm – 3pm and is free to join.
The community garden encourages individuals to come together offering the opportunity to form new friendships and social groups and to improve physical and mental wellbeing. We provide a programme of activities to promote the “grow your vegetables and learn to cook with them” project. This promotes the core values of the Healthy Living Centre and combines our working partnership with Aylesbury Garden Town to promote and support healthy living. We already have a project in place with Aylesbury Garden Town to create a Community Garden in Walton Court.
