Winter of Wellbeing (WoW) Activities

Through our Winter of Wellbeing (WoW) grant, organisations across Herefordshire are holding fun and free activities during the winter months! This is to support the social, emotional, and physical wellbeing of families during the cost of living crisis, by enabling them to access free activities. All events will include free hot food and drink. Families will be able to access information and advice to support them around the cost of living. 

It's not just for children, it's for all the family!
