Healthy Valleys is a community-led health initiative that supports communities in rural South Lanarkshire. We focus on providing opportunities for local people to improve their health and wellbeing and build stronger communities in areas of deprivation or where there are service gaps. Our resilience is our strength allowing us to quickly adapt to support the ever-changing needs of the community since 2003.
The organisation is structured into three thematic teams –
- Resilient People
Working Together Towards Better Wellbeing.
Resilient People supports adults and older people to build independence, improve their confidence and mental health whilst combating isolation through intensive one to one support and group work.
- Resilient Families
Supporting Bump to Baby and Beyond.
Resilient Families supports women through pregnancy and families with children under 5; delivering intensive 1:1 support and a range of educational parenting programmes.
- Resilient Communities
Connect, Support, Nourish and Thrive – Resilient Communities tackles food poverty, social isolation and loneliness through the provision of various group work opportunities that promote physical health and wellbeing for children, young people and adults.
Volunteering is at the heart of everything we do, and we have an amazing team of volunteers with many opportunities to get involved in any of the areas of service delivery above. We are always looking to recruit new volunteers, so if you have time to spare, want to get involved and make a difference to people’s lives, please contact us.
