On 4th July 2021 RareQoL held a small event at Capel Hermon Business Centre which will be our new home. We invited members or our local community to the event to consult on wellbeing activities and resources which will help our community.

The World Health Organisation defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 1948).
The RareQoL team are advocates with long term health conditions. our physical, psychological and social well-being have to be considered.
This year 2021 marks a new era as we Rise -Up from Lock-down. Our RareQoL Team are working with community groups and small Charities to develop projects and activities which will improve well-being and contribute to social prescribing initiatives.
We are following government guidance set out in the Well-being of Future Generations Act in the development of our
well-being resources and activities.
COVID-19 has had a devastating and sometimes transformational impact on our communities. Guidance and resources to improve our physical, psychological and social well-being
has never been more important.
We are working with community groups to develop more understanding of social prescribing needs of the Rare Disease Community. Keep checking our web-site for more details of our work.
