With an active lifestyle having a massive impact on both mental and physical wellbeing, Nottingham City Council’s Travel Well project aims to help support people to build activity into their daily lives for lasting healthy changes.
As part of a national trial, Nottingham is one of 11 areas where it has been identified that people switching to more active lifestyles can make a real difference. The trial will give healthcare professionals and social prescribers the ability to refer patients to services that promote walking, cycling and wheeling delivered within the community.
The aim is to support people to become more active, manage mental and physical wellbeing, manage long-term health conditions or address social isolation.
The project will take place around Aspley, Beechdale, Bilborough, Bulwell, Sneinton, St Ann’s and Strelley.
We will be monitoring each of the Travel Well projects to understand what works and what doesn’t work. Travel surveys will be issued to people taking part in selected activities.
If you have taken part in any of the Travel Well activities or if you have any questions about Travel Well, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Travel Well is project led by Nottingham City Council in partnership with the Nottingham Place-based Partnership, Nottingham Community Voluntary Service and Nottingham City GP Alliance.
