Description

Outdoors, Active and Well Summer Celebration Event

“I feel my life has changed quite dramatically from feeling a bit lost with no direction and no lust for life…I’ve just finished a massive list of all the things I want to start next year! My only issue now appears to be the lack of days in a week!”

We would be delighted if you could join us at our first Outdoors, Active and Well summer celebration event.

Outdoors, Active and Well (OAW) is a citywide project run by Leeds Mind, Hyde Park Source (HPS) and The Conservation Volunteers (TCV), funded until June 2019 by the Big Lottery. The project aims to address challenges of poor health (mental and physical), lack of confidence, social isolation and difficulty with progression into employment. So far OAW has reached over 200 beneficiaries.

We have delivered a combination of outdoor activities run by HPS and TCV, and peer support skills courses run by Leeds Mind. Together, we have been supporting people to appreciate the great outdoors, get active in accessing environmental groups (including gardening groups, allotment groups, wildlife walks), and improve confidence and develop skills to maintain wellbeing.

We will be showcasing our year one achievements in the first hour, which will include:

  • Project overview
  • Key achievements and impact in year 1
  • Testimonies from project beneficiaries
  • Summary of the independent evaluation of the project so far
  • Plans for year 2
  • Take part in fun activities:
    • Taster session on Mindfulness & Meditation
    • Tree of Life taster session
    • Plant swap
    • Art Attack
    • Hapa-Zome
    • Mindful Wild-life Walk
    • Herby Baths
    • Time-Out Zone
    • Feedback Tree
