The South West Hospital and Health Service is looking to engage all communities across the South West region who would benefit from the knowledge, skills and positive attitudes that motivates them to live healthier lives. The Healthy Communities initiative is a new approach that aims to help the people of the South West eat well, be more active and encourage healthier lifestyle behaviours. Unlike traditionally focusing on illness, our initiative seeks to empower individuals to take care of their health and wellbeing addressing modifiable risk factors of chronic disease, supporting community initiatives and building partnerships.

Healthy Objectives are community based projects which encourage participation or the achievement of activity goals.

If you can help an objective reach its goal, please contact the Healthy Communities team today!

We would love to hear from you!
