If you would like help to be active but don’t know where to start, then the Social Prescribing for Physical Inactivity Service could be for you. We know that becoming physically active can have a positive impact on physical health and emotional wellbeing and this service offers 1:1 support from an experienced worker to help get you moving. We work at your pace, helping you to set realistic goals and find suitable activities – your social prescriber can even accompany you to classes and activities until you feel confident enough to attend on your own. Call Stella on 07739 649 839 or contact the Healthy Living Centre on 0117 377 22 55.Referral

Do you want to become a healthier woman, but feel you need some support to make changes? Perhaps you want more control over your eating habits, to give up smoking or simply to become happier and de-stress – if so, this may be the right group for you. You’ll meet a health worker to indentify a few achievable goals, and then join the group to participate in weekly activities and talks, which have a different focus each week. We are friendly, accepting and mutually supportive, and we also offer taster sessions if you are unsure but want to try it out.
It costs £1 and runs in term time only, and you can call Sally Clements on 0017 903 0024 for more information or use the form below.Referral
