Healthy Living Initiatives

Portfolio: Case Study

Health and wellbeing are at the heart of Annexe Communities’ philosophy for creating better local lifestyles.

Since 2001 our organisation has worked with the local community in Glasgow’s Partick to deliver wellbeing initiatives from our Healthy Living Centre base. These activities form the core services of our business.

Nuitrition courses: an annexe way to better healthOver the years we have developed in-depth skills and expertise which have made us confident of delivering highly cost-effective solutions with wide benefits and tangible results.

In 2008 Annexe Communities was contracted by Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS Community Health and Care Partnership (CHCP) to deliver healthy living initiatives in four neighbourhoods across west Glasgow. During this time we worked closely with residents to develop accessible programmes to meet their needs.

Crucially this included capacity building support to enable residents to take action to improve their own health and wellbeing. Our Annexe GROWS service in Anderston is such an example, and led directly to the Back Garden project now run by a formally-constituted group of local residents

With additional funding from Glasgow Community Planning we now deliver weekly health clubs in community venues in neighbourhoods across central west Glasgow – offering practical health and wellbeing advice and activities including:
