Our Research Project 

Our "Active Wellness" programme is part of a national research project offering free learning advice and short courses for people over age of 19 years who may be experiencing mild to moderate challenges such as stress, anxiety and/or depression. 

On a white background, a black trunk of a tree leaps to life. It rests upon a small hill arching upwards towards the sky. Its leaves spring out around it, the lower ones dark – almost black and as our eyes drift further up around the dark bark the leaves begin to lighten. Finally at the top they shoot upwards, reaching out like outstretched fingers in light green, almost as light as freshly sprung grass.  In the centre of the tree, above the dark bark but below the light green leaves, there is a small yellow circle. Its representation is of the sun, and the trees teardrop shaped leaves sit around it like beams of light. Under the picture sits the words ‘ Be Active’,  the almost handwritten letters are mustard coloured  and arch up in a semi-circle. Below these sits ‘Keep Well’, again in a font that could be recognised as hand written but this time in a rich, deep pink.
