If we CAN, we DO!
Wellbeing in Action
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, personal, responsive, inventive and kind 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 humility is what underpins everything we do.
Joining us is like being a member of a very special lifelong club and we hope you'll love the experience.
