Health and Wellbeing Guides

Wellbeing Users Guide

Wellbeing is an integral part of human happiness. Therefore the Naturally Birmingham team have created a wellbeing user guide (WUG) to help with this. Originally intended to be part of the new tenants Home User Guide (HUG), we thought it would be useful for all residents to have access to this information.

The WUG highlights the importance of green spaces in health and helps directs the citizens of Birmingham to their local green spaces.

The WUG also explains how to combat 5 diseases which are ubiquitous to many different groups across Birmingham. Do you want to improve your wellbeing, then look no further!

Link Workers – Green Space for Health and Wellbeing Guide

We have also created a Health and Wellbeing guide with the intention of assisting link workers in their mission to create excellent social prescribing services.

The aim is to equip them with the skills to communicate the importance of green spaces effectively to their patient groups. The guide highlights how green spaces can improve physical, mental and social wellbeing. It also provides some cases studies and contacts for how to get started.

The Nature Connection Handbook: A Guide for Increasing People’s Connection with Nature

Nature Connectedness Research Blog by Prof. Miles Richardson:

“The real-world application of the science of nature connection really matters – there’s an urgent need to connect more people, more fully with the rest of nature. With widespread recognition of the importance of a close relationship with nature, there has been growing use of nature connection principles and practices across a range of sectors, including environmental, mental health, social care, youth, arts and creative industries, local government, community, education, and business.

In addition to our work carrying out research, evaluation, and designing interventions, we regularly offer guidance and support to organisations who want to put the research into practice. To meet the increasing demand for help in the design and delivery of nature connection initiatives, we have created The Nature Connection Handbook: A Guide for Increasing People’s Connection with Nature – it’s free and you can download it here”:
