Benefits of being physically active

Being active is key to leading an independent life. Doing a little bit of activity regularly can make a real difference to your health.

Bogus callers

Carers Wellbeing Fund

This fund is available for carers to take breaks and opportunities that give them choice, independence and control to improve their health and wellbeing. The fund is currently closed.

Children’s activities

It can sometimes be difficult to keep children and young people occupied, so if you are responsible for entertaining your children or grandchildren you may find some of these suggestions useful.
