Healthier Futures (North Kensington's self-care programme)
Healthier Futures is the name given to North Kensington self-care programme.
This programme helps residents of North Kensington to take more control of their mental health and physical wellbeing, and build social contact with access to community, leisure, education, arts and volunteering opportunities.
The services are available for individuals aged between 18-64, who live and/or work in North Kensington and have been affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. They are grouped into four categories:
Exercise and Wellbeing Services.
Additionally, family self-care activities include gardening and family coaching, exercise & wellbeing classes. Boxing, women’s only boxing and yoga are popular choices, as well as cookery classes, health workshops and the Men’s Shed.
Residents can access the full range of Healthier Futures self-care activities by speaking to their GP practice (who will signpost them to their service of choice). All of the activities and details on how to join are also available on the Kensington and Chelsea Social Council (KCSC) website: click here.
