Thank you for visiting the Wellbeing College website. We hope that you find it informative, helpful and easy to use.
We are here to guide you and support you to improve your wellbeing, whatever stage you are at. We have gathered together lots of information about courses, activities and groups that are happening around Bath and North East Somerset to support people’s wellbeing. We hope that you will find something here that interests you, whether it be a one-off activity or a longer term course spread over several weeks. Most of our courses are free and are offered to B&NES residents who are aged 16 and over, or people who are registered with a GP in B&NES.
If you feel rather overwhelmed by the number of courses to choose from why not give us a ring and one of our advisers will help guide you to make an informed choice.
If you would like some 1:1 support and guidance we can offer you a free Wellbeing Advice session. Our adviser can meet up with you for an informal chat at a suitable location near to where you live.

If you have or have had a cancer diagnosis the HOPE (Help Overcoming Problems Effectively) programme can help you set positive goals for your future.
Supported by two trained HOPE facilitators it’s a great opportunity to meet others and explore together proactive ways of taking control of your health and wellbeing.
HOPE courses are designed to help people become more knowledgeable, skilled and confident in managing the physical, emotional and psychological consequences of living with and being affected by a cancer.
HOPE uses activities, such as goal setting, action planning, mindfulness and gratitude diaries, to create an upward spiral of positive emotions leading to improved confidence, social support, happiness and well-being.
What participants have said about the course:
"Since starting the HOPE programme, I realise that I’m not alone with my fears and concerns – I can see things differently now, which helps me to be more positive about the future, whatever that may be" (HOPE programme participant)

The 6 week course starts on Wednesday 18th April, book your place here.
