As part of the Active Wellbeing Service we are looking across the county to find suitable physical activities for people to take part in and enjoy. The activities in the booklets on the following page have all been checked and are appropriate for people with specific long term health conditions.

Health and Active Wellbeing

Active Wellbeing is an umbrella term that we use for a number of services and projects helping Suffolk become more physically active. These services range from community based development services working closely with GP surgeries to specific services supporting people with long term health conditions such as osteoarthritis. We also spend a lot of time helping the wider community including health professionals, community leaders and volunteers to understand the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle and the significant impact that can have on someones health.

By clicking on the links below you can find out more information about what we do and how we do it. There are also some links to useful information and strategies championing the importance of physical activity for the health of Suffolk.
