Free one-day Health and Wellbeing Fair

Ards and North Down Borough Council, in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA), is hosting Free one-day Health and Wellbeing Fair on Thursday 14 November at Ards Blair Mayne Wellbeing and Leisure Complex.

Mind Body Business (MBB) is the Ards and North Down Borough Council and Public Health Agency (PHA) project designed to help local organisations put “health” in the heart of their business.

The link between healthy employees and a healthy, thriving business has been well documented in recent years with those looking after staff wellbeing reporting a decrease in absenteeism and increased performance.

This MBB event will showcase Health and Wellbeing services and initiatives from organisations that could positively impact on the health of employees in local businesses, thus contributing to improved morale and productivity.
We are inviting you to participate in the fair by showcasing your services at an exhibition stand, free of charge. 

We would hope that local businesses in the area of Health and Wellbeing will support us by exhibiting as requested, to make the fair an informative and worthwhile event for our local business to attend.

If you are interested in participating in this major health awareness event, please complete the below Expression of Interest Form and return it by Friday 16 August 2019 before 4:00pm at the latest and email it to: healthandwellbeing@ardsandnorthdown.gov.uk or tel 0300 013 3333 Ext 40333 for further information.
