Healthy You, Healthy Me

Healthy You, Healthy me is a brand new project that is run monthly by Student Volunteering Cardiff (SVC). The focus of the project is to promote a healthier and more active lifestyle for adults with learning and physical disabilities.

The aim of the project is to encourage different healthy activities and to discuss what living a healthy lifestyle means. We are lucky enough to have a range of instructors from different activities attend and give taster sessions. These have included things such as a Zumba, Yoga and Judo, all of which were as fun for us volunteers as they were for the beneficiaries!

One of the great things about this project is that as volunteers we are required to get fully involved and participate in all of the activities. There isn’t a sense of volunteers and beneficiaries; instead we are all just one group learning a new skill together.

It is a fun and relaxed environment and it is amazing seeing how much everyone enjoys themselves. If you are interested in sport, or healthy living, or even if you yourself want to get more active I would recommend Healthy You, Healthy Me as a great insight into just a small part of the amazing work SVC does.
