Through the Doorway to Healthy Living is a ‘virtual’ healthy living centre working primarily in Shrewsbury, but also with a Shropshire-wide remit.

We use the term ‘virtual’ because we do not have premises of our own, preferring to use a variety of community venues across the area to provide activities within communities – in other words we want to spend as much of our funding as possible on people rather than places.

Our aim is to reduce health inequalities (by which we mean reducing the gap between the health of different groups of people such as the well-off compared to poorer communities or people with different ethnic backgrounds), by giving people the skills, opportunities and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyles.

We do this by providing free or low cost practical activities that can help people to live healthier and more fulfilled lives.

Building Better Opportunities-This project will provide pre-employment support within Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin for people aged 19 and over who are not in work. It focuses on those who are furthest from the labour market, helping them engage in activity to move towards and into employment and is funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund.

Through the Doorway to Healthy Living are delivering a variety of taster sessions and courses as part of this programme. We have three themes: Health & Wellbeing, Cookery and Exercise. To find out more click here www.throughthedoorway.btck.co.uk/BuildingBetterOpportunities
