Get support for your health and wellbeing

We have lots of support for your health and wellbeing. This page will outline how we can help with your physical health, and don't forget to check out the support we have for your mental health. 

Help to give up smoking

We’ve joined with Healthy You to support you to give up smoking for good! 

Our free 12 week support programme can help you with:

  • Personalised plan to help manage cravings and withdrawal.
  • Access to nicotine replacement therapies if appropriate.

Available at our South Bretton Family and Community Centre. Sessions every Tuesday between 12.30pm and 5pm

To get referred, simply select the stop smoking option on the form below and we'll be in touch.

 

Eat well, lose weight, feel better

We’ve joined with Healthy You to offer FREE Adult Weight Management Programme for those living with mental health challenges.

The most important reason to lose weight is to make you feel better. Being overweight or obese puts you at higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, cancer, or having a stroke or heart attack.

We know that losing weight is not always easy - especially if you are living with poor mental health -  but Healthy You is here to help.

You’ll join a programme of 12 weeks of face to face coaching, either online or in person to help you to make healthy food choices and increase your activity levels.

To join the programme, you’ll need to have a BMI of over 25 (we can help you to work that out, if you don’t know) and be living with mental health challenges.

To join, simply select the 'weight management' option below and we'll be in touch.

 

Health support for new mums

We’ve teamed up with Healthy You to offer you FREE nutritional, exercise and weight advice and support if you are planning to get pregnant or have just had a baby. 

You must:

  • be over 16 years of age

We’ll support you with a weekly nutrition and exercise workshop for three months. 

The programme starts on 11 January and will run every Tuesday between 10.00 and 11.30am at our South Bretton Family and Community Centre. Support is also available online if you are unable to make it in person.
