Last month saw the launch of the Get Well for Winter campaign developed by the North East and Cumbria Learning Disability Network and Skills for People.
Get Well for Winter is a programme running from 7 September until Christmas to support and empower people with a learning disability and their supporters in the North East and Cumbria to Get Well this Winter. It will focus on the following themes:
- Healthy Eating
- Healthy Exercise
- Healthy Mind
- Staying Connected
- Staying Safe
A weekly bulletin and timetable will be produced every Monday and shared which will include activities, resources and information for the following week. It is more important than ever for this campaign to run given the risks around COVID-19, the campaign will also focus on promoting Annual Health Checks and flu immunisation.
