Boost for healthier lifestyles questComments Off
Efforts to tackle the main causes of long term ill-health in the Rochdale Borough will get a boost from April.
A new Living Well partnership is being developed to build easier routes to healthier lifestyles for people in the borough.
Living Well will be delivered by a partnership between The Big Life group, Link4Life, Rochdale & District MIND, Early Break and Rochdale CVS to offer lifestyle change on our doorsteps and in our homes.
Getting in touch
You don’t need to do anything different right now as the changes will be gradual, ask for help the usual way and we will take care of the rest.
The phone number for Living Well’s single point of access for people, families and services in the borough will be 01706 751 190.
Moving forward together
Over the coming months Living Well will:
Offer more joined-up help and support with healthy lifestyle change to families and children, and not just adults;
Enable teams of health specialists across different organisations to work more closely together so they are better equipped to help people and families facing more challenging multiple lifestyle changes and prevent long term ill-health linked to lifestyle choices;
Provide a platform to help local communities focus their strengths and resources in the fight against health inequality;
Give people, families and services in the borough a single point of access for support with lifestyle change that’s delivered locally or reached easily.
Rochdale Council, the NHS, and voluntary groups are giving their full support to the initiative.
