A Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle is the best medicine

The Butetown, Riverside & Grangetown Communities First Team (BRG) will be working with residents and local community groups to help address factors that contribute to ill health in our locality. Improved health and wellbeing is a priority for national and local government but the positive outcomes of changes in health care and related services often have less [positive] impact within the city’s less well off households. For example experiences of:

  • Limiting and chronic health conditions;
  • a lower take up of health checks an;
  • non participation in or low levels of exercise or physical activity;
  • a higher than average incidence of ill-mental health
