Health & wellbeing
Helping people of all ages stay healthy, well and connected to their community, able to live an active, independent and fulfilling life.
Community support can provide a lifeline for people managing a long term condition, recovering from illness or injury, or struggling with their mental wellbeing. Healthy lifestyles and access to nutritious, affordable food are vital to living well, particularly to give children the best start, and help avoid reliance on statutory health and social care later in life.
How we’re making a difference
Tackling the key areas of need
From supporting the mental wellbeing of children and young people to providing training and accessible information on issues affecting adults and young people with learning disabilities, and helping to raise awareness of mental health and suicide, we are working with local charities and community groups to improve the health and wellbeing of lives in Norfolk.
