Taking place at Oxstalls Sports Park, Plock Court, Tewkesbury Road, Gloucester, GL2 9DW.

Big Health Day celebrates its 14th anniversary this year. The event, held in Gloucester, is aimed at helping people with learning disabilities with complex physical and emotional health needs and those with physical disabilities and sensory impairments, autistic people and anyone with mental health support needs to stay active and healthy.  

On average, this popular day attracts about 1,500 people with 80 volunteers giving up their time to make the day happen. This year’s event – on Friday June 17 - is expected to be even bigger than usual.

Among the many health and social care stalls will be information on annual health checks, easy read information and resources, learning disability teams, dental access services, podiatry, screening, community Diabetic team and the County Council employment team.
