Between 2008 and 2011 fifteen Well UK partners took part in the £3.9m Big Lottery funded South West Well-being programme which aims to improve the well-being of 20,000 people across the region, through a range of innovative and exciting services along the three themes of family healthy eating, physical exercise for older people and improving low level mental health well-being.
