Active Life

HOFS Appliance Hall, Mondays 10.45 - 11.35 am

Active Life for a Healthier You is a ‘not for profit’ Community Interest Company based in Southend on Sea. We work with the local community and partner organisations to deliver high quality health and wellbeing sessions to children, young people, families, adults and older people. We ensure our service is needs led, easily accessible and affordable to all.

Active Life delivers a wide range of programmes which complement and support existing services, thereby avoiding any unnecessary duplication of valuable resources. Sessions are delivered in partnership with Healthy Schools, Local Authorities, the NHS and ActiveEssex.

Benefits the Community

There are a number of ‘for profit’ companies that provide health sessions but they are generally attended by those that can afford to pay expensive memberships. ‘Active Life for a Healthier You’ benefits the community by providing health and wellbeing sessions at non-traditional venues such as village halls, community centres and schools.

Sessions are delivered ‘at cost’ and any funding raised is used to subsidise sessions wherever possible, targeting areas of particular need. 

The company provide opportunities for volunteering experience and part time jobs for local people whenever possible.

Active Life for a Healthier You cater for everyone, regardless of age or ability.
