Martin from Poole was diagnosed with diabetes in 2017 and walked himself to better health. Fast forward to March this year when he visited his GP after feeling under the weather; his GP recommended he contact us to see how we could help. His story isn’t finished yet, but he’s taken significant steps. Read his story.

Our Activity Finder is Dorset’s source of inspiration and information for new activities. Julia was browsing it one day when she discovered Walking Netball. She’s found a new community; has increased her activity and made big improvements in her lung capacity.
New this summer, activity providers can submit their activity for inclusion on the Activity Finder. Do you know of a local service or group that’s making a difference to Dorset’s health and wellbeing? Please ask them to add their activity!
