Green Gym -style activities are a proven model for improving the physical health and mental wellbeing of voluntary participants, working as a group on a range of environmental tasks. Regular volunteer task days are established to engage people in a constructive outdoor activity which helps to improve the local environment.

Green Gym -style activities neatly combine physical activity for health improvement, with informal, supportive social interaction, and a great sense of achievement – all of which are great for the mental wellbeing of participants. It fits very well with the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ outlined by the New Economics Foundation: As well as encouraging physical activity, there are natural opportunities for learning new skills, connecting with new people and places, giving time through volunteering and observing change, achievement and one’s physical surroundings.

This is a Life Matters service offering people opportunities for living well.
