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.
