The Staying Well Team held another successful event at Pellon Social Club on Monday 9 October. Attended by over 60 local residents, there were talks by Sue Watson from High Five on keeping fit and well, Men’s United and The Phoenix Shed also attended to talk about the benefits of their groups, and how they can make a difference to help men who feel lonely and isolated. Other agencies who attended were Victim Support, Better Living Team, Better Lives and Calderdale DART, who were also on hand to offer advice and information regarding their services. The highlight of the day finished with the very popular singer Sally Glennon, who managed to entice the attendees to show off their dancing skills!
The Staying Well project works one to one, with people who are isolated or lonely to link them to social activities in their area. These local events have been successful in reaching even more lonely and isolated people, and following the success of ‘Head over Heels’, ‘Look over your Shoulder’ and ‘Brought to your Knees’ events, Staying Well is now moving throughout the Warley district with the view to working alongside existing community groups/churches and also planning another community ‘Dip your Toe in the Water’ event in the New Year, with the theme of staying positive and motivated.
Staying Well is about helping you to stay healthy and improve wellbeing. Referrals are for anyone 18+ and can include a chat with a Staying Well worker, a home visit and information and support to attend activities in your area.
If you know someone who could benefit from our service, please contact the Rachel Swaby Staying Well Worker on 01422 392708 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
