Active Living

WellComm Active – Active Communities are Well Communities

WellComm Active is a community health and wellbeing initiative that seeks to empower citizens to manage their own health through increased physical activity and improved diet. The initiative will focus on programmes that support healthy eating active living and encourage people to live independently in their own communities for as long as possible.
