Across Powys we run local HEALTHY FRIENDSHIPS GROUPS, which are part of what is officially known as the "New Age Sport" Project, funded by Big Lottery Wales.


Sessions are weekly and usually last about 2 hours


Activities vary from place to place, and week to week, but include:

  • The indoor, seated sports of Boccia (Seated Bowls) & New Age Kurling
  • Refreshments
  • Games, Puzzles and Crafts
  • Seated exercise to music
  • Singing
  • Occasional guest speakers & social events

With all activities, you are welcome to join in or simply watch others!

Why? (Benefits of Participating at Group Sessions)

Improved physical fitness

Improved mental wellbeing

A chance to meet others and form new friendships

Plenty of laughter and fun!

How much?

Who for?

We welcome adults who can answer "yes" to one or more of the following questions:

  • Do you experience anxiety or stress?
  • Do you endure  any mental health condition?
  • Do you experience depression or low mood?
  • Have you recently suffered a bereavement?

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions then there is a warm welcome awaiting you at your local Healthy Friendships Group.
