Improving health through volunteer-led activities in the community

Description

Well Together provides a range of interesting, sociable, health-led activities delivered by dedicated activity volunteers. Our activities are free and run across Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven, in wheelchair-accessible venues. There are many groups available, including crafting, peer support and walking, and there is no limit to how many of these you can join.

Well Together is for adults aged 18 years or over and we welcome service users with long term health conditions. We do ask that people must be independent enough to leave their home un-aided and be well enough to access an activity in the local community run by a volunteer.

How can you access the service?

You can self-refer to this service by either calling 01274 259190 or by completing the self-referral form (see below).  GPs and other health professionals wanting to make a referral on behalf of a patient can do this using the professionals’ referral form (below).  

Once you have been referred to Well  Together, one of our team will contact you to find out what your interests are and match you to one of our many activities.

Download a referral form for GPs and other health professionals. You can also download a referral information sheet for professionals for advice and guidance on making a referral.

Well Together Walks training package

Well Together offer a bespoke walk leader training for anyone who would like to become a Volunteer Walk Leader for our service. You will be helping people in your community to get active and healthy, providing vital support that they otherwise might not get. As well as ensuring our walks are friendly, safe, and well run, walk leaders are also ambassadors for walking, showing people that walking really can make a big difference to their lives.

We also offer walk leader training to people wishing to lead a walk for other organisations or areas for a small cost. Please contact our service for more details.
