Community living

Community resources

Lots of people want to stay in their own homes and the council wants to help people to do this. There are many different resources available across Wiltshire, ranging from day centres providing a hot meal, some company and activities to keep fit, to local groups, for example walking groups and reading groups.

Wiltshire Council is working in partnership with local people and communities to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone who lives here. Health and wellbeing centres provide a hub within communities where people can get information about what’s available within their community, access groups such as local walking groups or speak to staff about things people can do to stay healthy and well.

Further information and details on what activities are available in your area can be obtained from the website:
