l Solihull Council’s Sports and Leisure Team
l SHINE - Solihull Council’s healthy lifestyle programme for children, young people and their families.
l Autism West Midlands for Blind People

Cabinet Member for Healthier Communities, Councillor Sue Rose, said: “It’s important that people have access to relevant and up to date information on health. We are encouraging residents to come to these sessions to learn what resources are available and where they can find them.
