Healthy Shropshire is a local website designed to ensure everyone in the county has the opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle.
The emphasis is on prevention – helping people of all ages to avoid and positively affect health issues influenced by lifestyle choices.
The website and resources provide a wealth of information on support available to you in making the changes you want. It covers the key aspects that are important in leading a healthy lifestyle:
- Stopping smoking
- Keeping physically active
- Eating healthily
- Drinking sensibly
- Feeling positive
Information covers all ages, from early years, through childhood, adulthood and later life. Topics also include immunisations, ageing well, pregnancy and sexual health.
Healthy Shropshire includes a directory which enables you to find local services in your area, and provides a search facility. This includes smoking cessation services, weight loss programmes, exercise on referral programmes and local opportunities, such as Active4Health classes for getting more physically active.
