Zing Somerset Community Support

Update

Due to Covid-19 Zing has been unable to deliver within their communities the community lifestyle officers have been busy creating lots of online resources, we aim to get back into our communities as soon as possible following government guidelines check our website and social media for updates.

Zing Somerset County Council’s healthy eating and physical activity support. It is delivered in partnership with SASP, Sedgemoor and South Somerset district councils.

The team comprises of Community Lifestyle Officers who run a variety of programmes across all ages, abilities and locations.

The team works within selected places for a period of time to identify areas of strength within the communities; including the people, places and the groups/organisations. They then work to develop and expand on those existing skills and knowledge to create new opportunities for people to improve their health & wellbeing.

In supporting communities, we will promote a range of local and national campaigns and opportunities to increase awareness and the benefits from being active and eating healthily. We will work towards enhancing the national health promotion messages by using a variety of web-based tools and face to face initiatives.

We will work with existing groups and partner organisations as well as setting up new opportunities to gain an understanding of what the community needs and wishes are; what has been tried previously, and how best to achieve the desired results of sustainable community led activities and messages.

Areas the community lifestyle officers have worked or our working in are;

• TAUNTON (HALCON)

• BRIDGWATER (HAMP)
• HIGHBRIDGE
• WELLINGTON
