Community Wellbeing Collective

Wester Hailes’ Community Wellbeing Collective  (C.W.C.) is a group of 30+ people living in and connected to Wester Hailes who run activities to support community wellbeing.

The CWC run the Community Wellbeing Space in Wester Hailes’ Westside Plaza shopping centre. The space provides free community wellbeing activities, run by CWC members, to enhance health, wellbeing, local action and to help Wester Hailes people feel more connected to their community.

Through their program, the CWC aims to combat a range of issues such as negative effects of poverty, social isolation and low mental health. They do this through the open space and communal activities offered at the Community Wellbeing Space, which include mindfulness, zumba, creative writing, care cafes, baby creative play, yoga, tango and colour meditation (to name a few). These activities and communities create a new space where the people of Wester Hailes can come together to knit tighter support networks, develop skills, connect to further resources, and not only survive but thrive.
