HEALTH AND WELLBEING

 

Health practitioner service

We offer a one to one support service for people living in Gleadless Valley to encourage them to make positive changes to their lifestyles to help them improve their health and wellbeing. This may include helping them to do more exercise, eat more healthily, stop smoking or lose weight.

 

Our health practitioner works with adults over a 6-8 week period, to help them set achievable goals and providing advice, encouragement and support to achieve these goals. He has knowledge of activities and services, both in the local area and citywide, and is able to signpost and refer people to these where appropriate.

 

Over the past six years, more than 450 people in the Gleadless Valley area have made improvements to their lifestyle through this service.

 

People can self-refer or can be referred by a health professional or support organisation.

 

“Before accessing this service, i never went out much and didn’t have the confidence to meet new people. I feel so much better now, its really changed my life”
