welcome to our new website
new branding, same us
Since the end of last year, we have been looking to update our building and our branding, so we can spread the word about who we are and what we do.
The Bridge is a small health and wellbeing charity based in Southwark. The borough of Southwark has some of the worst health and wellbeing statistics in London, with obesity in Southwark significantly above the national average and the prevalence of mental health problems such as depression 14% higher in the borough compared to the rest of London . And these are just a couple of the many problems facing those living and working in the borough today.
Here at The Bridge, we run facilities for local residents and workers, including a women only gym, a variety of community activities and targeted programmes, such as SWAP, a weight management and physical activity programme. There are plenty of ways to support what we do, such as hiring our meeting rooms or sipping a coffee in our cafe as any profits from our business activities are re-invested in our charitable programmes.
In 2016, we developed a new 5 year strategy on the direction that we wanted our Charity to take, looking at both mental and physical health and wellbeing. We believe that this website will give us the tools to spread the word about what we are doing and will give us a platform for sharing information and resources for everyone to access, even if they can't come to us.
