About the Goal
 

To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages is important to building prosperous societies. Concerted efforts are required to achieve universal health coverage and sustainable financing for health; address the growing burden of non-communicable diseases, tackle antimicrobial resistance and environmental factors contributing to ill health.

What Neighbourhood Houses & Centres are doing

Good Health and Well-being is multifaceted, therefore the way in which Neighbourhood houses and centres address this Sustainable Development Goal differs greatly. Across our Houses/ Centres there are healthy cooking classes, exercise groups, and gardening to promote physical health, but there are also art classes and social groups, such as Men's Shed targeted towards building mental health within the community.
