Call to join Communities Network and attend summit at County Hall

The event will help build and strengthen relationships in the community

Volunteers at a Communities Network event

Residents and groups in Leicestershire are being given the opportunity to join the Communities Network, and find out more about the importance of health and wellbeing at an event being held at County Hall on Monday 18 March.

The health and wellbeing summit, organised by Leicestershire County Council, will have a range of expert speakers who will discuss topics including the importance of social engagement, physical health and mental health. There will also be taster session on mindfulness and a chance to join a gentle physical exercise. 

Residents, businesses and community groups are invited to come along to the session and get involved by signing up to the Communities Network.

The event will help build and strengthen relationships in the community through a face-to-face event and giving people the opportunity to take part in discussions.

This is a great opportunity for the local people of Leicestershire to get involved with an in-person event and to join the network.

Community groups and organisations are also encouraged to join in, as we look build connections, support each other and build community resilience.

As one of the guest speakers and attendees, I look forward to meeting network members and seeing how this can boost community cohesion and help support residents.
