Helping each other to stay well this winter

This week is Self Care Week and Wiltshire Council and NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group are encouraging people to be well-prepared ahead of winter by taking simple steps to look after themselves and helping their families, friends and neighbours to do the same.

This year, the theme for Self Care Week is “Choose Self Care for Life‟ and preparing now for the winter ahead will help people, particularly those who are elderly or vulnerable, to stay as well as possible.

This means trying to stay active even when the weather is colder, and eating a balanced diet. Wiltshire Council’s health trainers can help people every step of the way the service is for people aged 18 + and is free. They can also help you find other services and activities to keep you healthy and well over winter.

For more information visit our Health Trainers page or call 0300 003 4566.
