What is wellbeing??
Wellbeing has been defined as: “A dynamic state, in which the individual is able to develop their potential, work productively and creatively, build strong and positive relationships with others, and contribute to their community. It is enhanced when an individual is able to fulfil their personal and social goals and achieve a sense of purpose in society.”

The Wellbeing Info
of the month
Active Sunderland Wellness Walking Programme
The Sunderland Wellness Walking Programme offers a series of short, FREE, weekly walks that take place at various locations across the City of Sunderland. The walks are accredited by the National Walking for Health Programme and last between 30 and 90 minutes. The walks take in the varied landscape of Sunderland, ranging from the coast and woodlands to local parks and urban areas. They are an excellent way to get out in the fresh air, meet new people and improve your mental and physical wellbeing.
Walks are delivered by friendly, qualified Volunteer Walk Leaders who tailor the walks to be suitable for all ages, fitness levels and abilities. It is advisable to dress for the weather and wear comfortable supportive footwear. The programme also offers Nordic Walks and Mums on the Move Walks!
