Join up now for new phone access health programme

New phone access health programme

30 Jun 2020


In response to the current pandemic, Horsham District Council’s Wellbeing team has launched a brand new health and wellbeing programme which can be accessed from home via phone.

Throughout the coronavirus crisis, the team has continued to support local residents and those working across the District to keep them fit and healthy, both physically and mentally.

This new programme, which is completely free, offers three different phone sessions:

Emotional health and wellbeing

This session focusses on managing stress and anxiety. It gives advice on improving sleep and addresses the subject of emotional eating - looking at triggers, barriers, and challenges, and finding ways to tackle them.

Healthy eating and nutrition

This session looks more closely at your current diet and how it can be improved. We look at the Eatwell plate and offer tips and suggestions on everything from healthy food swaps to shopping and meal planning.

Physical activity

This session discusses the importance of physical activity, looking at your current levels of fitness and how to incorporate exercise into your daily routine.

Commenting on the new programme, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Community Matters and Wellbeing Cllr Tricia Youtan said:

“Never has it been more important for us all to remain fit and healthy both physically and mentally, than during these challenging times.

This is an excellent package for people who are ready and motivated to make changes to their diet and lifestyle, but don’t want to join a long course and can’t attend courses in person due to the current circumstances.

“I would encourage as many of you as possible to sign up – it’s absolutely free and couldn’t be easier to join.”
