We’re here to support you make a change

Horsham District Wellbeing is a friendly free service for any adult living or working in the District. We can help you access local services to improve your health and wellbeing, and give you support and advice on how to build changes into  your life.

Support tailored to you

Our Wellbeing Advisors can see you face-to-face in a location convenient to you. We help with things like losing weight, getting fitter, reducing alcohol intake, kicking a habit like smoking, or simply improving your general wellbeing.

Improve your health for the future

We also provide NHS Health Checks and Wellbeing MOTs.

The NHS Health Check is a national programme for adults in England aged 40 to 74. Find out your cholesterol, blood pressure and  discuss your family history and lifestyle.body composition scales to find out your muscle mass, bone mass, fat %, hydration levels and more. You will have the chance to talk through your results confidentially and decide on any steps to help improve your health and  lifestyle.

We have a range of free courses to help you lead a healthier life

Coming up we have Learn to Run, Back to Fitness, Legs Bums and Tums, Pilates and 65+ Back to Exercise courses. These free courses are perfect for those looking to take their first steps to getting active.

We also have our WOW (weight off workshops) for those wanting to create healthier habits. Over 12 weeks, with the support of a small
likeminded group, we focus on healthy eating, weight loss, physical and emotional wellbeing, along with making sustainable lifestyle improvements.

What do previous clients have to say?

Rosemary completed our 12-week WOW programme in Henfield last summer and lost 8lbs. With both parents developing diabetes later in life, it was important to her to understand the changes she could make to help prevent this. Here’s what she had to say:

I knew the course would be a really good way to learn more and keep me motivated to lose weight. It has really helped me to become aware of my lifestyle choices and has given me  confidence to make healthier decisions.

Sally, my course leader, was always helpful and very approachable, and the group was never judgemental. I continue to stay active and make better diet choices as a result.

After some routine tests, David was told by his GP that he was pre-diabetic and was advised to contact Horsham Wellbeing and later met with one of our Wellbeing Advisors for a 1-2-1 appointment. He commented:

We discussed my condition and lifestyle but most importantly, they listened to what I had to say.
I left the meeting feeling glad that I’d come, and the advice was helpful. I have adjusted my diet
as we discussed. It’s surprising how easy it is to do when you understand the reason why.

I’d advise anyone, who needs advice concerning their health, to talk to Horsham Wellbeing. You’ll be surprised at what you can learn.
