New website design launched!

We are pleased to welcome you to the brand new website of the Network of Wellbeing (NOW). We decided to re-design our site to make the design cleaner and the layout more user-friendly. We hope you will enjoy the results! To introduce you to the new site this post will provide a short run-down of all of the new sections and features. If you have any questions or feedback about the site please feel free to contact us. And please note that since the site is newly launched there may be some broken links or things that appear where they shouldn't - we hope this doesn't happen, but if you have to spot something out of place please contact us so we can get it fixed ASAP. Many thanks for your support!

This is what inspires me about wellbeing”. These were some of the comments that opened the first meeting amongst NOW’s growing group of Wellbeing Ambassadors based across the world.Here at the Network of Wellbeing (NOW) we aim to promote the importance of wellbeing locally in Totnes, nationally in the UK, and internationally across different parts of the world.
