What is Holistic Intervention?
Holistic intervention is a referral program for people that can benefit from being more active or more socially connected.
Since 2016 the Sähëlï Hub have provided a holistic invervention program, based at Calthorpe Wellbeing Hub, Saltley Wellbeing Centre and Handsworth Wellbeing Centre. Working alongside the centre staff, with support from Birmingham City Council managers, has been part of the success of the program.
The Holistic Intervention program provides an opportunity for people to chose from a menu of activities and look at their goals, whilst timetabling what suits them. We provide a full lifestyle triage, offering a balance of physical and social activities.

How does holistic intervention help?
Sähëlï mainly offer a women only environment for group fitness both indoor and outdoor. We currently offer a smaller program for Men but once a person starts with our program we can signpost for lots more Active sessions locally. Sähëlï is a Social Enterprise, most of the women who deliver the service are local, trained and mentored by Sähëlï to offer a professional, happy experience for individuals starting out on their active journey.
Our sessions offer holistic wellbeing from the moment the person engages onto the program. As there are many women newly engaging in exercise without a clear direction with health conditions from different cultural and age groups, the community are empowered by education from the program and many women control and improve their conditions by being more active.
How much does it cost ?
It does not cost participants to be on the Sähëlï holistic interventions programme. Please note Sähëlï delivers the program from the Wellbeing Service hubs and centres through Birmingham City Council and can now offer a wider range of activities for you.
