Online Enrichment for your Mind, Body and Soul
Whilst we spend time away from our friends, place of study and indeed places that help us to live healthy and active lives, we at UCG have developed an extensive online resource library to help us all maintain health, happiness and wellbeing during the pandemic.
We have attached some useful links to healthy eating websites which include cooking on a budget and healthy meal recipes from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
If you have children or young siblings, we have included some activities and fun workouts you can do at home with all the family.
All the resources attached are free and we have included links to the website pages for you to use.
