Health and Wellbeing

We want to ensure that you have the opportunity to learn about and practice a healthy lifestyle. We want to encourage Healthy Eating practices, as well as ensure you understand about the importance of safe practices on sexual health, drugs and alcohol. We work in partnership with various external agencies to ensure access to advice and support in these areas. Weekly drop-in sessions and individual referral to agencies are available.
