Healthy and active Grangetown

If there’s one thing our Love Grangetown consultation told us, it was that many Grangetown residents love being active, particularly through swimming, sports, dance or yoga. Access to healthy activities and leisure facilities ensures the community can stay healthy. Easy access to GP surgeries and greater mental health support were also raised as important issues.

Grangetown residents have suggested the following ideas to create a healthier and more active Grangetown. We're advertising the following projects throughout the University so we can work alongside residents to start turning these ideas into action. Watch this space for updates on project progress and new collaborations.
