Funding Grant Will Fight Loneliness Through Exercise

BWP is delighted to announce that is has been awarded funding from Western Power Distribution’s Community Matters fund to help combat feelings of isolation and loneliness.

With this funding BWP is working with local cultural venues, and leisure centres managed by  L Leisure to provide safe spaces for group activity and exercise sessions for women who’ve been affected by Domestic Abuse.

BWP Partnership Manager, Chris Harris, said: “We would like to thank Western Power Distribution for their support and funding.

The Work it Out Together project has the potential to make a huge difference to local women. Not only improving physical and mental health through exercise, but also fighting feelings of loneliness and isolation by coming together for walks and other group activities with cultural partners Beeston Canalside Heritage Centre, Stapleford Library & Attenborough Nature Reserve.”

“We would like anyone who would be interested in joining us to come along to the D.H Lawrence Birthplace Museum in Eastwood at 12.30pm on Wednesday 20 July to find out more.” Click here for more details.
