Staying Well – ‘Bring Your Neighbour’ Event at Halifax Academy

The Staying Well Team held another successful event at Halifax Academy Primary School.

The ‘Bring Your Neighbour‘ event was attended by over 80 local residents, there were demonstrations by Tai Chi Tigers, Line Dancing  and the ‘ Ryburn Ringers’ and Fuel Poverty also attended to talk about the benefits of affordable warmth.

Amongst the other agencies who attended were Victim Support, Better Living Team, Macmillan and Citizens Advice, who were also on hand to offer advice and information regarding their services.

The highlight of the day finished with the very popular singer Julianna, who managed to entice the attendees to show off their dancing skills! The Staying Well project works one to one, with people who are isolated or lonely to link them to social activities in their area. Staying Well is about helping you to stay healthy and improve wellbeing. Referrals are for anyone 18+ and can include a chat with a Staying Well worker, a home visit and information and support to attend activities in your area.
