New Horsham Wellbeing Hub declared open

Horsham District Council’s Wellbeing Hub has moved to new premises which were officially declared open by the Council’s Chairman on Saturday 1 July.

To celebrate the new centre, an open day took place showcasing all the various health and wellbeing services on offer, and providing the opportunity for visitors to pop in and say hello to our wellbeing advisors.

The new centre offers residents and people working throughout the District the chance to drop in and sit down to talk about a wide range of courses, classes and services and find out how quite often a few small changes to their health and wellbeing routines can make big differences to their lives.

Some of the services include:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Alcohol awareness and reduction
  • Healthy eating and weight loss
  • Prediabetes
  • Getting active
  • Improving strength and balance
  • Wellbeing checks (MOTs and NHS Health Checks)
  • Simple steps to improve your mental wellbeing
