What We Can Offer

Physical Activity

You don’t have to go for a five-mile run everyday to benefit from exercise. It is easy to slip into bad habits of sitting more than moving, whether that's due to watching TV, driving or being a passenger in a car, having a desk-based job, or a lack of confidence. According to NHS Choices, there is scientific proof that you can lead a healthier and happier life by being physically active on a regular basis - it can lower your risk of developing heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, stroke and some cancers. Making small changes like upping your daily steps can improve this.

Stop Smoking

It has been recognised for some time that stopping smoking is the single best thing anyone can do to improve their health. Smoking is the biggest cause of preventable death and disease in the country - toxins are released in the smoke of a lit cigarette which are not only inhaled by the smoker, but by those around them - including children and pets. The body begins to recover as soon as cigarettes are cut out, breathing then becomes less of a problem because lung capacity increases, but the benefits don’t stop there...


Many people don't realise the amount they drink could be having an adverse affect on their health. Health issues associated with alcohol include developing throat and breast cancer, liver and heart disease, suffering a stroke, damaging the nervous system - as well as adding inches around your waist.

Healthy Weight

A healthy weight is different for everyone, your heart will thank you for balancing the scales in the right direction for you and your body.There may be lots of diets out there to choose from but, usually, it is best to set realistic goals to promote safe and sustainable changes - and then keep following those changes so they become a part of your everyday lifestyle. Our Living Well Mentors can help you set goals and give details on other ways you can achieve your healthy weight, such as joining one of their healthy cooking or weight management courses.

Mental Wellbeing

Most people have different ideas as to what wellbeing means. Generally, it points to how you are feeling, such as your levels of happiness, contentment, self-esteem and confidence. The Five Ways to Wellbeing - developed by NEF (New Economic Foundation) as part of the Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing – can help improve how we feel about ourselves. Our partners offer a variety of programmes, services and activities to give your wellbeing a boost.
