Be Well Glossop

Welcome to Be Well Glossop, an innovative and energetic community business which is trying to change the world – or at least that bit of it around Glossop. We believe that a little bit of social and physical activity does you good and we work with GP surgeries, schools, local clubs and other community groups to find ways to help people break the habits of inactivity, isolation and loneliness.

As it says above, we are a Wellbeing organisation and our aim is simply to do what we can to make people feel happier and be healthier.

While we are not subject to Covid mitigations at the moment we would still ask that you do not attend any sessions if you feel at all unwell.
