Welcome to Healthy Habits, a project designed around you and your wellbeing goals.

Taking a peer-to-peer approach, this programme allows you to address health related topics and achieve goals relevant to you within a supportive environment. Alongside the peer group sessions you will also have the opportunity to work one on one with our Healthy Habits Coordinator to focus more specifically on your own individual goals and aspirations.

About the programme

As the programme is run over a 6 month period, you have the opportunity to build new relationships within your group, which you could then continue beyond Healthy Habits.

The next cohort will start in June 2022

The programme will involve:

• Workshops and support groups
• Guest speakers
• Peer to peer and one to one support
• Social activities
• Goal setting, monitoring and reflection
• Support accessing both online and offline services

Whether the changes you hope to make are large or small, we can help.

If this sounds like the programme for you, please call Rebecca on 07923 154 178 or email Rebecca.Williams@ageuknorthtyneside.org.uk.

Feedback from previous customers

Susan said, “One-to-one and group support with Healthy Habits has helped me make positive changes to my diet, health and exercise as I get older and I’m looking forward to social interaction in group settings when circumstances allow.”

Leon said, "Being involved in Healthy Habits with Tom's positive attitude gives me something to look forward to every week."

Nick said, "The best help possible during the pandemic. Advice has been a help with the virus and keeping me awake and interested in myself. Simply put thank you all staff."

Pia said, "The Healthy Habits project has opened my eyes to lots of health issues that I need to consider now, rather than when it is too late - prevention is much better than cure!"

Susan said, “Healthy Habits has been such a positive experience throughout lockdown. Support from Tom and Rachel along with input from well informed speakers and interaction with fellow Healthy Habits members has been excellent.
