The Women’s Group is a weekly wellbeing group for local women to meet new people and take part in activities of the groups own choice. These can include cooking, arts, creative writing, outings, talks from organisations, and more. The group takes place on Thursday lunch times at Wester Hailes Healthy Living Centre and we would love to find a volunteer to come along and support our facilitator. If you have experience or an interest in supporting groups, please do get in touch for an informal chat.
About The Health Agency
We aim to work with people of South West Edinburgh to improve their Health and Wellbeing. We aim to work holistically at the Health Agency where we believe a healthy person is someone whose body, mind and feelings are working in harmony. To meet the many different needs of the community we offer a wide range of services from one on one work, to group work. We are increasingly working in other settings in the community such as schools, GP centres and community centres and with voluntary organisations. We try to involve local people in all aspects of our organisation encouraging them to share their ideas and giving volunteers the opportunity to work in many different projects within the Health Agency.
