Council invests £1million into Healthy Hubs

Published: 23 Jan 2020


A new health and wellbeing service funded by Hertfordshire County Council and delivered in partnership with district and borough councils is launching across Hertfordshire this year.

Healthy Hubs are dedicated local venues where people can get health services, support and advice all in one place, making it easier to get help with a range of physical and mental health issues.

Whether it’s stop smoking services, help to lose weight, mental health support, encouragement to get more active or even advice on how to cut down on your drinking - your Healthy Hub can help you.

All Hubs will be open by Spring 2020, welcoming people of all ages who need a little bit of advice and support to improve their health and wellbeing. 

Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Prevention, Tim Hutchings said: “The Healthy Hubs are part of our District Partnership programme, through which we have already invested £2.3million into health and wellbeing services across the county over the last five years.

“This new initiative will see a further £1million invested over the next two years to enable each district to establish a Healthy Hub in their area, making it easier for people to pop in and get the friendly, professional one-to-one support they need to improve their health and wellbeing.”
