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 Coordinator to focus more specifically on your own individual goals and aspirations.

Here's a quote from Susan, a happy participant in the 2020 sessions:
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.Read more about Susan's experience

And here's one from Leon, another happy participant: "Being involved in Healthy Habits with Tom's positive attitude gives me something to look forward to every week." Read more about Leon's experience

As the programme is run over a 12 month period you have the opportunity to build new relationships within your group, which you could then continue beyond Healthy Habits.

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 0191 280 8484 or email

Due to COVID-19, our Healthy Habits programme is currently run virtually. We will return to face to face sessions as soon as it is safe to do so.
