New Local Projects Supporting Adult Mental Wellbeing

23 well-being projects across the district have recently received new funding from Bradford council’s Public Health team, to offer a wide range of activities to help improve wellbeing for adults across Bradford district.

Activities include group walks, outdoor cooking, creative writing, woodcarving, dance, arts, crafts, nature exploration and much more. Some activities are specifically for groups of people who are more at risk of ill health, whilst others are open to everyone in the local community.

Grants of between £500 and £10,000 were made available to support projects that focused on the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and accessing green spaces. Evidence suggests that there are five ways to improve mental wellbeing:

  1. Connecting with other people helps us build a sense of belonging and share positive experiences.
  2. Being physically active causes chemical changes in the brain which can positively change people’s mood.
  3. Learning new skills can improve self-confidence, whilst giving to others creates positive feelings and helps people connect to each other.
  4. Paying attention to the present moment, also known as mindfulness, helps people to understand themselves better and enjoy life more.
  5. The World Health Organisation found that being in green spaces such as parks and woods has positive effects on overall mental health and quality of life.

The organisations will be delivering their projects across the Bradford district in the coming months.

Activities are all free or low cost. Details of the projects and how you can get involved can be found here
