Healthy n Happy was established by local people in 2002 as a Healthy Living Initiative however we have significantly evolved and diversified since then.As well as our core health and wellbeing initiatives we have:
- Launched CamGlen, our community radio station
- Enhanced local neighbourhoods through community engagement and capacity building
- Established a social enterprise arm and set up our newest initiative, CamGlen Bike Town.
Our vision is for Cambuslang and Rutherglen to be the healthiest and happiest places to live in Scotland.
We work towards this by providing opportunities for people to actively improve their lives and the places where they live, work and play.We are a community owned organisation, governed by local people and all our work is directed by local priorities.We now have twenty six staff, a bank of 30 sessional workers and over 110 volunteers.
Over the last 15 years we have grown and developed successfully - we have a high degree of local support, both from local people and our partners and funders. Each year, around 6,000 local people take part in our organisation’s work and we deliver work across up to 98 different local venues. We undertake a wide range of activities which meet our aim of improving the lives of people living in Cambuslang and Rutherglen.
The services that are provided at this facility includes: Stress Management, Healthy Eating and Exercise, Alcohol Prevention Work, Volunteer Support and Development and Local Community ICT Development.
