If we CAN, we DO!

Quick Access to our services

Welcome to Wellbeing in Action. 

 

Our mission is to prevent and remove the things that cause harm to people's physical, financial, community and mental health and wellbeing, so they can live their best life.

We believe actions speak loudest, so we draw people together to find solutions to problems and roll our sleeves up to make them happen. We're busy, creative, resourceful, responsive, inventive and compassionate people - and our motto is 'if we can, we do'!  

We don't see our role to 'give charity' - we know that all people, at some time of their life, need to reach out for help. And all people, at some time of their life, are in a position to extend a hand to others. This transaction of humanity and kindness, the ability to receive with pride and to give back with joy is what underpins everything we do.

Joining us is like being a member of a very special lifelong Good Karma Club and we hope you'll love the experience.

Wellbeing Wedding Boutique

ELF EXPRESS 2021

WHEN:  December 2021

WHERE: Good Karma Unit, Newton Abbot

WHAT:    An enormous thank you to all our supporters who donated over 500 brand new gifts which were distributed to families in crisis this Christmas.  The elves were not only busy doorstep delivering, but an amazing grotto was also created with free entry to children in need. With four rooms, meeting all their favourite characters from Mickey & Minnie, Elf on the Shelf, Elsa & Olaf (the snowball throwing was enthusiastic!), the LOL dolls, Paw Patrol and Peppa - it was still Santa who stole the show and it melted our frozen hearts to hear 394 children's wishes (that's a lot of Ho Ho Ho's!) and see the tradition of excitement with real prospects of them receiving gifts many parents had struggled to provide.  Each child's face was amazed to have a personal certificate outlining their proud achievements of the year (proof 'He' really does know if they're naughty or nice!) The team were exhausted but fulfilled and an Easter Bunny cave is already under construction!

Thank you everyone - what a fantastic community! x

WHEN:   9 & 10 March 2022

WHERE: Excel Centre, London, UK

WHAT:  With never an era to compare, globally businesses are reframing the human existence in the workplace in ways that make the term 'out of the box' seem quaint!  This Expo called the Business Revival Series considers exactly as the title states - revival and transformation.  Wellbeing in Action are proud to focus the market place attention to the key issue of women in the workforce, particularly retaining the wisdom, skills and experience that can be lost through the devastating effect of menopause - the implications of which can be as destructive to careers and workplace wellbeing as any pandemic!  33 million women in the UK will, at some time sooner or later, experience this natural progression and the 70+ intrusive symptoms and their impact on physical and emotional health, relationships and their working life.  We'll be showcasing our Peer Support Club network and workplace menopause support services.
