Health & Wellbeing

As an Association, our primary aim is to engage with our communities as well as maintaining our commitment to looking after the wellbeing of all our members in the community.

With that in mind, we hold events and talks about a range of different topics to educate our community and enable them to make informed choices in all aspects of their lives.

As we continue to maintain our commitment to looking after the wellbeing of all our members in the community, on of our initiatives, the 50+ Activities Club, is open to all communities and is aimed at men and women who are aged 50+. 

Black History

Although the celebration of Black History is recognised throughout the month of October, we believe that Black History should be celebrated all year round and will continue to highlight events occurring throughout the year.
