Working together for all our Wellbeing

Tell us how you could be more healthy and happy.

The Active Wellbeing Society has been established to work collaboratively with citizens to bring wellbeing activities into our communities. We work with a wide range of communities across the Midlands and beyond. We work hand in hand with communities, especially those deprived communities who are usually the least heard. We develop ways to be an active citizen, changing our environment for the better in the process. Our work includes a wide range of free activities, aimed at improving wellbeing at an individual and the community level. We know that being an active citizen, playing your part in making the world a better place, is good for your mental and physical health. We know that coming together to take part in fun, free activities makes you more likely to feel a sense of belonging and community, and makes you more likely to change the world around you for the better.

We work with communities to deliver the following kinds of activities: active communities, active streets, active parks, The Big Bike Project, Big Birmingham Bikes, The Run project, and Run Birmingham.
