The Active Wellbeing Society: Updates

Following a continuous review of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat, The Active Wellbeing Society has made the decision to refocus its activities from Friday 20th March. This decision has been made in consideration of our members, their friends, families and also the wider community.

We are adhering to government advice in order to minimise the risk of transmitting the virus by limiting large gatherings and to assist in fighting the spread of this within the population.

At the moment we are still running a light service, so please do check with us via this website or contact numbers or our social media pages for confirmation of what activities are running up until this Friday.

We will still be here to provide support in a number of ways including a friendly phone chat service, provision and distribution of food, positive storytelling and virtual wellbeing activities.

You can access at information of our services at: http://www.theaws.co.uk/coronavirus

We will be updating this webpage and our social media pages regularly.

This is an ever-changing situation and we will update our stance as and when required, following any further advice of the government and Public Health England.

The Active Wellbeing Society are continuously monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The health and wellbeing of our community will always be our priority.
