We are a local, not-for-profit, health organisation working to help the people of Darnall, Tinsley and neighbouring areas stay well. We deliver a combination of group activities, 1 to 1 support for healthy lifestyles and long term conditions management, peer mentoring and volunteering, as well as delivering health campaigns, training and talks.
We are the lead organisation for the Healthier Darnall and Tinsley People Keeping Well Partnership, building on our 15-year history of connecting with and engaging the community and working in partnership to address health inequalities. Our team includes multi-lingual speakers; Health Trainers, Health Development Workers as well as local volunteer Health Champions and our Social Prescribers.
Our services help to remove barriers, are culturally sensitive where appropriate, build trust, listen and respond to local need, and are underpinned by our volunteers. Our approach is collaborative, consistent and client-led and through increasing access to services, we help mitigate risks such as loneliness and isolation. All of our activities are accessible to all - please make us aware of any support requirements you have when you get in touch. We encourage people with carers to bring them along.

- One to One Support from a Health Trainer on healthy eating and being active

- Volunteering opportunities
- Signposting to other activities, services, courses locally or in the city

We are proud to be a Dementia Friendly organisation, and a number of our staff and volunteers have completed the Dementia Friends training. Whilst people with dementia are welcome at any of our groups, we run some activities specifically for people living with dementia, and their carers. Please contact us on the office number below, or contact Jo on 07495 548929 if you'd like to come along to any of these:
- Dementia Cafe - join us for hot drinks, cakes, and a range of activities, sometimes with guest speakers or musicians. There is a cost of £2 per person. The cafe is held on alternate Thursdays 1.30-3pm at Handsworth Old Rectory, 420b Handsworth Road, S13 9BZ.
- On Our Plot - come and get involved with lots of different tasks on the allotment at Darnall Community Allotment, Infield Lane, S9. We run sessions here every Wednesday at 12-4pm. Please note that this is a seasonal activity that we run during the warmer months only.
