Connecting People and Places

Living in a rural setting can sometimes exacerbate the feeling of loneliness and isolation for those living there.  The effects can lead to poor health, loss of independence and lower quality of life.

Healthy Valleys enables people to get out and about, meet new friends and take up the many opportunities that we have on offer; from local health walks to going along to our community cafes; from learning how to cook to volunteering.
