The Millennium Centre works closely with all the charitable and statutory (St Helens Council and the NHS) organisations that deliver services to people in St Helens. As part of this, and in addition to coordinating the St Helens Gateway health and social care information point, we have initiated a steering group that works together in partnership to plan and deliver St Helens Wellbeing Week.
St Helens Wellbeing Week was established to contribute to improving St Helens’ health and wellbeing by:
- educating members of the local community about wellbeing and how to improve wellbeing
- increasing participation in health and wellbeing related events and activities
- raising awareness of wellbeing services available in the borough, promoting early interventions and access into services
The inaugural Wellbeing Week took place between Monday 14th and Sunday 20th May 2012. Over 36 organisations worked together in partnership to deliver 71 free events and activities for the local community to attend and learn about improving their wellbeing, and over 2,000 people took part in the campaign.
