Wooded Hill

Connecting with nature and being active outdoors can improve people's health and wellbeing.

‚ÄčThere is considerable evidence to show the benefits and positive outcomes include better weight management, helping to prevent chronic diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes and hypertension, and improving mental wellbeing and health by reducing stress and anxiety.

Communal outdoor activities also promote and create social connections with others, again supporting and enhancing wellbeing.

This site gives information on the opportunities provided by groups and organisations across Caerphilly County Borough for people to get more active outdoors and enjoy their green spaces to benefit wellbeing and health. In addition simply to encouraging people to get out informally in their own localities, we want people to understand what's available and where. 

These partners have also formed a new Nature Wellbeing Network across the borough which collaborates with GPs, health professionals, and relevant support agencies who can refer people, as and where appropriate, to get involved in outdoor, nature-based activities.
