Heritage and Health

Welcome to the home of our Heritage and Health project: Returning the heritage to the Old Library and Museum, Worksop. Work on an ambitious plan to regenerate this key historic Grade II listed building  has begun.

 

The project will:

  • Renovate, conserve and restore a significant heritage building creating a multi-purpose centre
  • Create a new space within the centre for the people of Worksop to celebrate their heritage including physical displays and an innovative virtual museum
  • Develop heritage activity, volunteer programmes and partnerships to significantly broaden opportunities for engagement with local people and users of the centre
  • Develop innovative work exploring heritage and health.

Why is heritage important for our health and wellbeing?

Studies have shown that heritage can make difference to improving health and wellbeing.

Our project activity and volunteer roles have been built around the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing'. A useful framework produced by the New Economics Foundation that suggests 5 actions you can do to improve your health and wellbeing. 

 

Connect - Be active - Take notice - Keep learning - Give

 

Trying these things could help you feel more positive and able to get the most out of life. We hope our heritage and health project will add to the growing evidence and shine a light on the role heritage can play as a route to improved wellbeing.

We have made it easier for you to keep up to date and get involved:
