The aim is to maintain a link with the local community and encourage local engagement and activities.
With the encouragement and enthusiasm of residents our priorities are geared towards increasing resilience and activities to deal with local Well-Being & Social Inclusion. Our aim is to facilitate participation and promote inclusion.
This was one of the key areas identified during our on-going discussions with local Childs Hill residents. Utilising our local assets and natural green environment (Childs Hill Park,Basing Hill Park, Elm Park & Clitterhouse Park) presents a fantastic opportunity to bring people together, create a better neighbourhood fostering a pursuit of fitness, happiness and social interactivity.
Our initiative will build healthy social networks by enhancing community engagement and improving physical, emotional, mental health and wellbeing in Childs Hill. As both the proportion of older people and the length of life increase in Childs Hill, key questions arise. Will resident aging be accompanied by a longer period of good health, a sustained sense of well-being, and extended periods of social engagement and productivity, or will it be associated with more illness, disability, and dependency?
Our Wellbeing project will assist in keeping older people healthy longer, delaying or avoiding disability and dependence. With motivated and engaged adolescent participation in the community engagement initiatives more inter-generational interaction will be fostered.
