Promoting health and wellbeing

Cotswold District is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of its residents. We work alongside local NHS and other partners through its Health and Wellbeing partnership to champion the interests of our residents. We also deliver some health interventions ourselves and we support other local organisations.

Mental health

Gloucestershire County Council run a number of different mental health services. They can also offer advice on other organisations and where you can find help.

Postural Stability

These fun classes promote strong muscles and bones and help improve balance.

These activities can be done seated or standing and the session closes with a taster of Tai Chi Chi Kung.

Tai Chi Chi Kung

Learn the 18 moves for health, which have been shown to reduce the risk of falls and improve balance, strength and co-ordination. This session will leave you with a sense of total calm and well-being.

Cotswold Walkers 

Do you like walking but don’t like going on your own? Have you looked at walking groups and been put off by the length of the walks?

Cotswold Walkers is a series of short, accessible walks. The walks last about 30 to 45 minutes and are at a pace to suit you. All walk leaders have trained with ‘Walking the way to Health Initiative’.

  • Fairford: 10.30 am on Mondays except bank holidays. Meet at Fairford Community Centre - 30 minute health walk offered on first Monday of the month.
