If you would like help to improve your health and wellbeing, have you ever considered making contact with the Isle of Wight Wellbeing Service who will be pleased to offer you advice and support in three important areas – Weight Management, Stopping Smoking and Physical Inactivity.
There is plenty of evidence now available to show that there are clear benefits to be gained from making even small changes to your lifestyle in order to improve your overall health. Imagine how much easier it would be to stick to a new regime if you had someone to encourage you at every step!
Our Wellbeing Advisors understand how hard it can be to change the habits of a lifetime and are there to help you make that first step to a healthier life. Over a twelve week period we offer group sessions in both stopping smoking and weight management through behaviour change and motivational support. Subsequently, follow up motivational support will be given for up to one year.
Those being referred to increase their physical activity are offered an exercise referral with a qualified instructor at Isle of Wight Council 1Leisure facilities, with half price membership for up to 4 months!
Referrals can be made to the Wellbeing Service through your GP or other health professional.
You must be over 18 years of age. Please note that access to our weight management programme is restricted by several conditions which should be discussed with your health professional.
