Ways To Wellbeing | finding nature’s ways
The ‘Ways to Wellbeing’ are a set of evidence based actions which promote personal health and wellness. They are simple things that any individual can do in their everyday life to preserve and improve their own health and wellness.
We’ve adapted the ‘Ways to Wellbeing’ to create our own unique ‘nature’ spin on that simple and easy to learn model, enhancing it to include the environment too – for both ‘human & nature’s wellbeing’.
Our very own ‘Nature’s Ways To Wellbeing’ – provides simple ways to get outdoors into nature, for your own self-care and positive mental health, as well as doing your bit for the planet too.
Nature’s Ways To Wellbeing | our sponsors
Against each of our ‘Ways to Wellbeing’ listed below are details of our current sponsors, funders and partnering organisations:
Cox Bank Publishing works directly with amateur sportspeople, sports clubs and county and national sports associations to capture new writing on sport – generally sporting stories or accounts of a race, an event, a competition or a memorable moment. They work to support community wellbeing by promoting sport and active leisure as a means to be fit and healthy, whilst supporting literacy in schools through writing about sports achievement – so encouraging a life-long love of sport and participation at whatever level.
The Midlands has been the engine room for British industry, commerce, philanthropy and social change since the middle ages.
SSE Midlands is growing the social economy in the region. The Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Start Up programme is aimed at social entrepreneurs in the early stages of development who have been operating for less than two years. The programme is free to attend, provides 14 days of learning over 12 months, provides a mentor from Lloyds Banking Group and a grant from the Big Lottery to help get the idea off the ground.
Human-Nature Escapes CIC are on the 2016/17 cohort of 40 budding social enterprises/social entrepreneurs from the Midlands area.
Our clay business was initially founded in 1932 and with over 50 years in the service of the studio pottery and education communities we have become one of the best known names in our market. Our family company is now in its fourth generation and therefore heritage is very important to us and so is our place in the wider ceramic community.
We are pleased to be supplying Human-Nature Escapes as a local community interest company with materials, tools and equipment, and so pleased that they have chosen pottery making as a therapeutic and creative activity for people to enjoy to improve their health and wellbeing. We are proud to be associated with the ‘Be Creative’ way to wellbeing – particularly as our local heritage has, over generations, been so interwoven with the creative talents of this area. Historically, so very many local residents relied on pottery making for employment, but now equally, many people, both locally and across the world, are enjoying pottery making purely for pleasure as a hobby and leisure activity.
Our premium-quality clay bodies have a worldwide reputation, especially our unrivalled panmilled bodies, which are manufactured using traditional machinery and a process unique within the industry. We have a highly qualified and experienced team of engineers building top-quality kilns for hobby, educational and industrial use, all helping people (like the artists and participants at Human-Nature Escapes) to ‘be creative’.
