Stop Smoking
How smoking affects others

Did you know that second-hand smoke contains over 4000 chemicals and anyone that breathes it in is at risk of developing the same diseases as smokers?

Sometimes it has been hard to come but those that run the group are very helpful and encourage you loads. I have had one of my tablets for diabetes taken away to make things good. I have lost weight and lost a dress size. Only hope this group can carry on as it is very helpful.

Physical Activity
Free activity vouchers at your local leisure centre with Everyone Health

We have partnered with Jubilee 2 Leisure Centre in Newcastle under Lyme to offer free gym/swim/class vouchers for those over 50 who live in one of our targeted wards. These offer a fantastic way to try a new class or pop for a swim after work, so that you can fit your exercise in around your work/home life.

Weight Management
A new approach to weight management

When it comes to weight management, we all know that it’s a combination of good diet and exercise that holds the key to success. However, it’s safe to say that many of us struggle to stick to new regimes when starting out on weight loss journeys.
