Together Stronger – will be a vehicle for local organisations to work more closely with professional sports clubs and like minded community and voluntary groups in the challenge to improve health.
The all-age, all-sport, all-inclusive initiative is aimed at improving the health and well-being of people in Shropshire irrespective of age, race, gender or ability through increased physical activity and targeted health messages.
- Reduce Childhood Obesity
- Active Ageing
- Reduce Drug and Alcohol misuse
- Increase Awareness of Mental Health and Well-being (in partnership with Hub 365)
- Stopping smoking
- Keeping physically active
- Eating healthily
- Drinking sensibly
- Feeling positive
Shrewsbury Town in the Community will be contributing to this through projects already in action such as Head’s Up, focused on mental health, Extra Time, which aims to promote active living for those aged 55+, and Kick Cancer and will provide those who are, or have, suffered from the disease with an hour of support, multi-sport exercise, and social activities.
