This is a 12 week programme, run by Groundwork, that enables participants to learn to cook healthy affordable meals and to participate in taster sessions to improve their physical wellbeing.
Weeks 1 – 4
Participants will learn simple recipes that focus on developing healthier eating habits and building cooking skills. Each session will be user focused enabling them to identify their own barriers to healthy eating and learn recipes and tips to address these. Each session will have time to chat and build friendships
Weeks 5 – 8
The group will identify different types of physical activity they would like to participate in together that utilise free resources within their community – this could be a simple healthy walk that explores heritage or nature, walking netball, tai chi or exercise using local facilities such as trim trails or outdoor gyms – the choice is entirely down to the group
Weeks 9 – 12
Will focus on expanding their cooking skills further and supporting the group to continue their fitness journey. The aim is that by working with local organisations, the groups can also become sustainable supported by the hosts organisations in the future.
The course is aimed at 8 participants ideally and is free to organisations and participants. Groundwork will provide all food and resources for the duration of the 12 weeks.
They are particularly interested in
- Individuals living with mental health conditions
- Parents and carers of children with additional needs
- Those living with poverty or other vulnerable or disadvantaged groups
