Alicja Polak

I have recently joined the Partnership to focus on a range of projects designed to improve Hertfordshire’s health and well-being. I have a background in fitness and leisure, which has fuelled my passion for well-being and longevity.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with people affected by long term health conditions. Through this I have been able to broaden my understanding of barriers to participation in physical activity, in addition to the impact it has on one’s mental health. I have experience in working with young people and developed various physical activity sessions in the community to support their mental and physical welfare. This also includes designing informative booklets and writing physical activity framework for a charitable organisation.

My current projects include the East of England Mind Regional Network Hub, We CAN Cancer Exercise Rehabilitation, Social Prescribing and local activation of the We Are Undefeatable campaign.
