‘Active Lives, Healthy Minds’ is a partnership project delivered by Account CIC, Illays, Race on the Agenda and the Tamil Community Centre. Commencing in July 2016, the project first assessed the needs of its target population, including three discussion groups with Nepalese people to inform the work priorities. Following this consultation period, the project opened English language classes in October 2016.
During the life of the project a wide range of wellbeing activities have bee delivered. Sporting activities have included: resistance band exercises, strength and conditioning training, walking groups, and dance. Further activities that have helped to reduce isolation of this group have involved English language support and health awareness sessions.
