information SERVICE DETAILS

Our aim is to introduce communities to outdoor based activities in an affordable way, making them more sustainable for the future. These are offered in a comfortable and fun way – with lots of positivity to encourage further attendance.

To get people involved, relationships need to be built and trust formed, which requires ongoing preparatory work with professionals such as support workers and the lifelong learning team, by working with these professionals and organisations we can reach as many people as possible in the communities we work in.

Our programme of healthy lifestyles aims to help improve the health and wellbeing of the local community in South Edinburgh. This involves outdoor activities including; bootcamp, boxercise, walking and jogging .

We’ve also been working with Edinburgh Community Food to deliver healthy eating courses. Giving the local community the tools to move forward with a sustainable and achievable plan to improve health and well being in these areas.

- 10 x 6 week programmes of workshops introducing people to physical activity in the outdoors
- A series of cooking sessions to encourage healthy cooking and eating on a budget
- 20 growing workshops to grow their own produce
- 12 environmental enhancement workshops
