Wellbeing Enterprises gifts ‘prescriptions for joy’ thanks to local businesses in Halton

A local social enterprise in Halton is offering ‘Prescriptions for Joy’ throughout winter to boost people’s wellbeing and bring smiles to faces.

Wellbeing Enterprises CIC, a health and wellbeing community organisation operating for almost 19 years, has teamed up with local businesses across Halton and will be providing wellbeing treats to people in the local community. Examples include vouchers for food and drinks at Espositos Café, tickets to Widnes Vikings first game of the session, beauty treatments at The Annex Beauty, a trip to the Catalyst museum and a science show and cinema tickets at REEL cinema.

Mark Swift, CEO at Wellbeing Enterprises CIC said “working with local businesses we’re able to offer a wonderful range of wellbeing treats to local people. We’re delighted to work in partnership with businesses to create social value in our community”.

In addition to ‘Prescription for Joy’ there is also a full programme of exciting free courses and activities people can sign up for to give their wellbeing a boost during the winter months. Courses include yoga, cycling, flower arranging, visits to Norton Priory and much more.

James Smith, Operations Manager at Wellbeing Enterprises CIC said: “It can be challenging in the winter months to keep on track with our wellbeing goals, but as we enter into the New Year we might like to set some realistic goals to boost our mental and physical wellbeing. Our ‘Prescriptions for Joy’ and wellbeing courses are a perfect way to get started and make 2024 a healthy year”.
