From 18th – 28th March, staff and students from AECC University College will be running a two-week pop-up initiative at the Boscombe Arts Depot, aimed at fostering positive health and community well-being.

The “Health and Support Pop-Up” will offer free access to a range of health and support services, including musculoskeletal triage and signposting, group exercise sessions, foot care advice, NHS health checks and more.

You can view the full timetable here.

Partnering with BEAF, Help & Care, CAN and Healthwatch, the event will also provide comprehensive support including mental health services, lifestyle guidance, and social care support.

Daniel Heritage, Chiropractic Clinic Lead at AECC University College, commented: “We are really excited to be supporting our local community with this two-week initiative. At AECC University College, we offer a range of clinics to support our local community. Being able to be based on Boscombe high street for these two weeks will allow us to see even more members of the community, offering free health and support services.”

The event, which aims to cater for individuals and families who may not typically engage in healthcare services, has been funded by the Regional Innovation Fund (RIF). RIF funding focuses on knowledge exchange activities that support economic growth and productivity, addressing local and regional priorities. The pop-up aims to act as a ‘one-stop shop’ to allow people to access health and support advice. We are aware that poor health can impact significantly on peoples work and therefore can have major impacts to local economic growth and productivity.

Members of the public are invited to drop-in from 10am – 4pm during the health and support pop-up event. A daily timetable of services and events will be published, and pre-booking will be available closer to the event. Pre-booking options will be available, or individuals can simply turn up on the day.

Boscombe Arts Depot (B.A.D.) is a vibrant arts venue and community pop-up space situated at 616-622 Christchurch Rd, Boscombe, Bournemouth BH1 4BP.
