Self Care Week 2017

13th to 19th November 2017

Self Care is all about taking control of our health.

The theme of this year’s Self Care Week is Community Activity. Bracknell Forest is a hotbed of community activity, with an increasing number of ways that residents can get active, get connected, get help, learn, be creative and have fun with their family, friends and neighbours.

As we know, being involved in a community group can make us happier, help us feel less isolated, build strong support networks, reduce cognitive decline and can improve our physical wellbeing. Check out our Community Map here to find out what is going on in your area.
