Health & Wellbeing

Families in the Park and Get out and Play are being delivered in collaboration with Public Health & Borough of Poole. We’re working together to understand how we can increase access to Poole’s fantastic parks & greenspaces for young families who might not be enjoying them already. Spending time in greenspace is great for our health (as well as being fun!), but not everyone is able or knows how to get the most out of their local greenspace. We want to understand how local people want to be able to use these areas, what might be making this difficult at the moment and introduce people to fun, free ways to get outside and enjoy them. Public Health Dorset will be evaluating the impact of the projects so that we can learn how to enable more people to enjoy spending time in their local greenspace, and how this can support more people across Dorset to be healthier and happier.
