About us

gyc-logoGrow Your Community is a community-based project aimed at improving health, wellbeing and lifestyles of local people – with a particular focus on supporting older people by getting people more active in their communities.  It is being delivered by Broadland District Council in partnership with Sprowston Town Council and the Sprowston community and involves people, voluntary groups and service providers all working together to improve care. Recent research has shown the significant role of the community sector in providing care, often involving older people themselves as formal volunteers, informally as carers or as friends and neighbours giving assistance. The project will build on these skills and knowledge in the community to support people as they age.  It will also explore how service providers can better align provision to meet local needs.

Warm and Well items are available from the Council Office including blankets, ladies and mens socks, thermometers, keep fit DVDs, heat cushions and a limited number of hot drink flasks.

Our latest venture at Sprowston Diamond Centre is to work with the Alzheimer’s Society to bring a dementia cafe to the Sprowston area. Anyone interested in this please contact Sprowston Town Council.
