Healthy Living at Fortune Works
At Fortune Works we know that if people are physically healthy, they are happier too, and that a healthy lifestyle is better for everyone.
It is generally recognised that people with learning disabilities have poorer health outcomes than the general population, and that often they have fewer economic resources and opportunities to keep fit. We believe that this is often because health information is presented in a way that people with learning disabilities find difficult to understand, and that people with learning disabilities have fewer opportunities to take part in heathy lifestyle groups that meet their particular needs.
Therefore, the healthy living programme at Fortune Works is designed with the direct involvement of service users, and has already shown some amazing results. Find out more on these pages.
