The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) project wants to gain a better understanding of what keeps you well, what challenges you have and what needs to change, building on that information to help create healthier communities.
Over the past few months, they’ve already collected lots of information and thoughts from a survey and other discussions and meetings. They’re now looking to get some further views on some particular themes. They are running online discussion forums on:
Making the most of our countryside, parks and beaches for everyone
The cost of eating well
The cost of keeping active
Motivation and wellbeing
Bringing about local change
To take part in the forums visit the website.
