After an exciting and energetic 12 weeks, we are coming to the end of stage 1 of our Healthy Living and Wellbeing Project, in partnership Health by Science.

14 of our mangers based across the Lothians and Borders have been on a twelve week journey, developing skills and exploring their understanding around habit change, learning about the importance of physical wellbeing and the value of good nutrition, as well as how recovery has a direct impact on emotional and mental wellbeing.

Through working together in stage 1, Health by Science and our Lothians managers have refined and shaped the programme which helps lead the project smoothly into the next phase.

We are now preparing for 12 of our Edinburgh-based Support Practitioners and 8 Community Link Workers to start the 12 week programme, supported by Heath by Science and Daniel – our Healthy Living and Wellbeing Co-ordinatior. These groups of staff will be developing their knowledge and skills on positive wellbeing and habit change for the next twelve weeks.

We’ll be updating you on the progress throughout their 12 week journey, so stay tuned!
