Improving the health and wellbeing of local communities 

Parks and Green spaces offer huge benefits to people’s health and well-being. 

The Parks Partnership are working with Living Sport to improve access to information for the public about their local parks and green spaces. The website offers information on amenities and events. Those running activities in parks and green spaces or organisations that own these spaces can promote them for free on this website.

The Parks Partnership Team are working to improve access to Green Social Prescribing through GP surgeries and community support services for residents. We are planning a pilot project in four areas across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire to scope the possibilities for partnership working and discovering ways of working that are most effective to help people improve their health and wellbeing through accessing parks and open spaces and the activities that exist within them.
