What is the Babergh and Mid Suffolk project?

The Babergh and Mid Suffolk project is a three year project between Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils and our Active Wellbeing service; a service that supports older adults who are physically inactive to become more active.

Over the three years, our Active Wellbeing service will be working closely with separate surgeries in each district to support patients to improve their physical activity levels. The locations we will be working in include: Fressingfield & Stradbroke, Long Melford & Lavenham, Bildeston, Debenham, East Bergholt & Capel St Mary, Eye, Glemsford & Holbrook & Shotley.

Where is the Active Wellbeing Service currently being offered?

We are currently delivering the Active Wellbeing service in Eye, Glemsford and Holbrook and Shotley. Click on your area today to book an appointment with your local Physical Activity Advisor.

As a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, our Health and Wellbeing team have adapted their usual service. Referrals into the Active Wellbeing service can still be made, however all existing and new patients will now be offered telephone support, instead of the usual face-to-face consultations. This is temporary and in the meantime, the team are preparing for the launch of new projects and consultations which can go ahead once the current social distancing rules are lifted by the government.

To be kept up to date with plans and to receive regular guidance and inspiration from the team, please subscribe to our the Health and Wellbeing newsletter.
