Shaping Future Healthy Lifestyles, Wellbeing and Support Services in South Gloucestershire – stakeholder event 18 January 2018
January 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
South Gloucestershire Council’s Public health and Wellbeing Team want to work with you to improve the health lifestyles of everyone living in South Gloucestershire.
How healthy our diet is, how active we are and whether we smoke or drink can have a big impact on our health and wellbeing. Whilst in South Gloucestershire we are living longer than we have ever done before not all of us are living in good health, and there are significant inequalities between community groups.
Making better lifestyle choices can have a huge influence on our health, and could prevent a number of diseases. But it’s not always easy to do this, and some will need support.
In South Gloucestershire we currently have a number of healthy lifestyle and wellbeing services. Most have been designed to address individual lifestyle and wellbeing issues such as supporting a person to reduce their weight, to stop smoking, or improve their mental wellbeing. Some are provided by GP Practices and pharmacies, some from the voluntary and community sector and others by South Gloucestershire Council. This can make it difficult to know where to go or who to call to get advice and support.
South Gloucestershire Council’s Public Health and Wellbeing Division are working together with the Care Forum and other partners to develop more integrated and accessible healthy lifestyle and wellbeing services and support. They want to hear your views on what a new service model should look like.
They are hosting three stakeholder workshops in January for anyone interested in helping to shape services for the future. If you are interested please register via the link below:
You only need to attend one of these events. Three have been put on in order that as many people as possible can be involved.
Please also share this invite with anyone you think would be interested. They are looking to hear the views of as many people as possible from a diverse range of communities.
