We live in an age were our daily lives and schedules are dictated by commitments of family, work, business and so on. Yet so often those obligations are fulfilled at the expense of the most valuable life commodity, OUR HEALTH!
Britain is currently experiencing a health crisis according to many experts, the NHS has never before been under such strains to provide for an ever increasing population. OBESITY, DIABETES, CARDIO-VASCULAR DISEASES, MENTAL HEALTH and CANCER, are just some of the health conditions that are overwhelming our vital public health resources. Furthermore segments of Britain's populations are at greater risk of several conditions like diabetes and heart disease, e.g, Britain's South Asian Community. (BAME)
BRITAIN'S BAME COMMUNITY HAS VERY SPECIFIC HEALTH ISSUES THAT GO BEYOND SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS BUT REQUIRE A MUCH WIDER CHANGE IN APPROACH TO CORRECT HEALTH IMPARITY AND BRING IN HEALTH EQUALITY!
HOW DO WE BRING ABOUT CHANGE AND REVERSE UNHEALTHY TRENDS?
KRAMBLERS are bringing about grass routes changes towards BAME health to encompass, attitudes, perceptions, habits, access, opportunity and much more. Our aim is to transform the BAME health landscape by making WELLBEING attainable for all. A wide range of carefully planned projects are designed to make a healthier lifestyle accessible for all irrespective of ability and socio-economic factors.
Here at Kramblers we have turned the mundane into the extraordinary, WALKING!
We are walking for change. Many of us believe exercise is both expensive and time consuming, in our minds we make these evaluations, our mission is help people make their individual and collective health the most valuable of life's commodities.
Treatments are a cure to a health problem but they do not solve the most fundamental issue, which we believe is prevention. Kramblers ethos is focused on raising awareness and changing habits towards peventable health conditions. Our projects are divided into five programmes, OUTREACH, OUTDOORS, URBAN ACTIVE, EVERYDAY BITESIZE & EXPEDITIONS. Through our organised walks, excursions, local activities, workshops & seminars and other outreach projects, we are engaging people from all walks of life, from all backgrounds irrespective of age, gender and ability to participate as a Krambler. Our network from WITHIN the community, support and training infrastructure has been designed to have maximum reach and transform BAME health using WALKING as the fundamental active change.
Britain is blessed with beautiful countryside, the great and glorious outdoors. Our sweeping hills and breathtaking valleys are interwoven with an amazing network of safe and managed paths and walkways. Kramblers make the most of what Britain's outdoors has to offer. Furthermore many of the Kramblers projects are locally accessible within the community to maximise tack-up and benefits to those who need it the most.
Individually and collectively, locally and nationally we are bringing people together to improve our health and well being.
Furthermore our aim is to engage with public and private sector partners to raise awareness and promote a healthier lifestyle whilst at the same time promote the immense value of our environment and its conservation!
