WELLAND – wellbeing in Elland
Welland started in 2018 in response to conversations with local residents and small business owners in the community – many commented on a lack of opportunities available in the town, and the need for new, positive activity that helps to strengthen community spirit and improve wellbeing.
So, in June 2018 we piloted a one day festival, bringing together local wellbeing practitioners, artists, and organisations to provide a range of new activities the community could get involved in for free!
It was a huge success, and so in 2019 we extended the main event to a full weekend, and also ran a series of individual opportunities, including community walks, a workplace wellbeing networking event, and a series of ‘spark meetings’ where the community could give us their ideas.
We received lots of positive feedback from local people, and many of them were keen to access activities on a regular basis. So, we have now developed the project into a year-round programme!
Our new offerings launch from August 2020!
