Community Wellbeing & Creativity Hub

There are around a dozen Community Sports Hubs across Aberdeen-shire, and these have traditionally been spaces for local sports clubs & other community organisations to come together for sport & physical activities. Now, there is a general desire for the Hubs to become more inclusive, more wide-reaching, and to explore creative avenues to develop opportunities for non-sporting community groups, and individuals.

The Turriff Community Sports Hub is in the process of transitioning to a more inclusive model through the Community Wellbeing and Creativity Hub project.

Through creative activity and conversation with groups and individuals, the project will explore

  • the support needed for participants engagement, and re-engagement, with creative, mental wellbeing, and physical activity
  • How to build partnerships between existing and potential hub members
  • Showcasing the benefits of incorporating creative activity in supporting physical and mental wellbeing
  • Opportunities for priority groups and demographics to engage in activity
  • Identifying, promoting, and signposting participants to groups with ongoing activities that will continue to support their physical and mental health & wellbeing
  • Supporting the development of new creative groups in partnership with Hub partners.
  • These creative interventions, activity and conversations will be a combination of one-off events and ongoing sessions during the lifetime of the project.

The partner organisation for this project is theĀ Live Life Aberdeenshire Community Sport Hubs
