Our Latest News

2013 / July

We’ve been very busy beavering away behind the scenes making the Start2 resource even easier to use.  We’ve also been getting our new creative wellbeing activities ready in time for the change, and we thought we’d share one with you to whet your appetite.


Love Parks Week 27 July - 4 August 2013

It’s national Love Parks Week and we've got a great new activity to do in your local park, on your own or with others. So top up on that all-important Vitamin D with our Making Faces in Places activity. Pass on a smile with this fun ‘Be Active’ activity, creating faces in places and recording your creations. Click here to view and download this activity. You will need to be registered and signed in to do this. Registration is free, quick, and private.


Giving is as beneficial as receiving

Studies have shown that giving to others can stimulate the reward areas in the brain, helping to create positive feelings. Giving can encompass many things, from volunteering to going shopping for a friend.  Why not send an E-card or Media Album slide show and share with loved ones? (You could even make a slide show with your Making Faces in Places photographs).


“Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.”
