Shall we go outside?

The last few years have shown the importance of being outdoors and how it can benefit people’s mental and physical health (something we know more than most here at NAViGO).

On the back of this, the government announced a multi-million pound investment aimed at preventing and tackling mental ill health through green and blue social prescribing.

Let’s be honest, that’s a weird title. But it basically means connecting people with their surroundings through nature or water-based activities that bring a range of physical and mental health benefits.

The Humber and North Yorkshire region (including us, here in good old North East Lincolnshire) is one of seven ‘test and learn’ sites in England who are looking at the impact of such activity. As one of the test sites, we’re looking at how activities can improve mental health as well as reduce health inequalities. Plus how we can develop best practice in making activities accessible and reduce demand on the wider health and social care system.

So what does this mean for you? Well, you’ll find information about a range of activities on our events calendar from coastal walks to litter picks, community gardening to paddle boarding.

We’re also offering free taster sessions (for activities that usually charge) to service users so if you’ve ever fancied a go at canoeing or scuba diving, let us know and we might be able to help arrange a session for you.

Don’t know what you fancy? Need some inspiration? Then let us know. We’re happy to brainstorm some options with you.
