Everyone experiences challenges with their health and wellbeing, and it can be hard to fit self-care into your day.

Living with a health condition is common: 30% of the UK population live with one or more.

So is living without sufficient meaningful connection: 45% of adults feel lonely sometimes or often in England. 

Loneliness and disconnection both cause and worsen health conditions. Disconnected communities cost £32 billion every year

GP's can not solve loneliness and disconnection. The community we live in and the behaviours we engage with every day can.  

We must develop supportive environments and connected communities, so everyone has the tools to work towards better health. 

We are London's first non-profit community and voluntary sector platform – mapping organisations and bringing you the health stories, tips and services you need to care for yourself. 

The more articles people read the more they were likely to try out local activities and notice an improvement in their health. 

This doesn't need to be scary, in fact, it is simple.
