‘Healthy Horizons’ is being delivered by Richmondshire District Council and is a social based project with two elements of health improvement for veterans to choose from, or they can choose to do both. The ‘Step by Step’ element will focus on improving lifestyle choices, nutrition, physical activity, healthy cooking, healthy eating and improving physical health and wellbeing. The second element, the ‘Pop up Shed’ is based within a local workshop and will provide therapeutic sessions in arts and crafts including woodwork, creative writing, photography and painting to improve mental health and wellbeing.
The project entry is free to all participants who live in North Yorkshire, are aged 65 and over and have served in the armed forces, completed National Service conscription, or worked in the Merchant Navy in support of the military at some point.
