Wellbeing is so important but BWP recognise that this can often be forgotten or not prioritised. That’s why we decided to start the Wellbeing Project.
The definition from the Oxford English Dictionary says:
Wellbeing is ‘the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy’.
What contributes to positive wellbeing can mean different things to different people and because of this there is such a lot that comes under the wellbeing umbrella.
It could be feeling mentally or physically fitter, building confidence, learning news things, seeking employment or volunteering, improving resilience, feeling purpose, meeting new people.
Take the time to think about what wellbeing means to you.
The project is made up of three groups where we promote wellbeing in an accessible and inclusive space and create opportunities for women based on their own interests, abilities and strengths.
These groups meet regularly, currently via Zoom, and have other planned activities scheduled throughout each month. The women in the groups have experienced domestic abuse so we are mindful and sensitive of their needs.
