Healthy Living Groups

by The Braveheart Association

Social Group, Food & Nutrition, Conditions

Many of us know what we should be doing to live healthily, yet may struggle to when it comes to actively managing our own health!

Braveheart groups open the door to wellness, through friendly social meetings where people have the chance to identify small changes in their personal lifestyle which can make a big difference to their overall wellbeing. Our various health sessions are designed to combat common health concerns and help people to simplify their journey to optimal health.

You can join if you:
- have Type 2 Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease or any other long term condition
- want to improve your overall health
- want to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight

The groups are run by our trained volunteer health mentors. Health mentors will discuss a range of subjects around healthy eating and physical activity, and they will guide and encourage you to gain the insight and knowledge you need to reach your goals. Sessions last around one to one and a half hours and you'll receive a variety of handouts, in addition to peer support and motivation.

Where are groups held?
Braveheart is unique in that we will come to your community to run a group. As soon as we have 8-10 people in one area, we can get the group started!

The sooner you register your interest, the sooner we can get another group going! We can also offer the programmes to community groups that are already running, either during your group sessions, or on a different day.

How often do groups meet?
Groups will meet according to the wishes and availability of participants.
