Through The Community Mile programme, we provide an intensive 3-month package of training and support, to provide organisations with the necessary knowledge, skills, and empowerment to implement The Community Mile within their settings, to their specific communities.
We will train a group of dedicated Champions to motivate the community, supporting them to adopt a social prescribing approach through open conversations and active listening, as well as handholding and signposting people within the community to local support services - particularly those often underutilised by the communities they are designed to support.
We then provide a further 3 months light touch support, ensuring organisations have fully embedded The Mile and that their community is one step closer to living a healthier, happier, and more active life! Each organisation participating in The Community Mile becomes part of The Mason Mile’s network, where they will receive regular updates, newsletters, and invitations to quarterly champions workshops. We also invite everyone to be part of our wider community by joining our private, online group, where we offer a safe, supportive space for Milers to connect with other like-minded people from all different walks of life.
