The Network of Wellbeing (NOW)’s vision is of people and the planet thriving together. We connect people, support projects and inspire action for the wellbeing of people and the planet. We do this through events, network-building, our retreat venue Eden Rise, and community projects, such as our Share Shed – a mobile library of things.

2023 was a year of challenges but also transition. We revised our strategic goals and began to develop a clearer sense of our mission. We worked harder to generate income so we can offer more to our beneficiaries.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved in the year, including:

  • our six-week online Wellbeing for Changemakers programme;
  • the Share Shed’s weekly service to seven towns in south Devon;
  • the ShareFest we ran in Totnes (above) and the WoolFest we co-hosted in Buckfastleigh;
  • that 1100 people attended 57 separate retreats at our retreat venue, Eden Rise.

Now, as a new year begins, we’re keen to improve our offer so that we can build wellbeing even more effectively in the years to come.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have supported and engaged with our work over 2023, including those who have volunteered with us, supported us financially, attended our events, borrowed items from the Share Shed, used our Eden Rise venue, followed our work online, or generally engaged with wellbeing for people and the planet. We look forward to continuing to connect with you throughout 2024.

Thank you again for being a part of this journey with us.
