Through the Doorway to Healthy Living

Description:

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living is a ‘virtual’ healthy living centre working primarily in Shrewsbury, but also with a Shropshire-wide remit.

They use the term ‘virtual’ because they do not have premises of their own, preferring to use a variety of community venues across the area to provide activities within communities – in other words, they want to spend as much of their funding as possible on people rather than places.

Their aim is to reduce health inequalities (by which they mean reducing the gap between the health of different groups of people, such as the well-off compared to poorer communities or people from different ethnic backgrounds), by giving people the skills, opportunities and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyles. They do this by providing free or low cost practical activities that can help people to live healthier and more fulfilled lives.

Their regular programme of activities includes Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates. They also run weekly mini-music sessions for pre-school children. In addition, they often run cookery and nutrition courses, health and beauty activities and arts and heritage programmes, so please keep checking their website for up-to-date information by following the link given below.
