  • The Healthy Lifestyles Team are still accepting referrals and self-referrals online or by phone 01273 294589. Some support services are operating under temporary alternative arrangements, ie no face-to-face meetings
    • The Healthy Lifestyles Team operating a range of services for individuals and local organisations seeking support to make healthy lifestyle changes in the following areas:-
      • Stopping smoking
      • Increasing physical activity
      • Drinking less alcohol
      • Eating well
      • Losing weight
  • The Active for Life project supports residents of Brighton & Hove to become and stay active by offering a range of initiatives for people of all ages and abilities. The team are particularly keen to engage with individuals experiencing significant barriers to participation in physical activity.

    • Sign posting/referring to other Healthy Lifestyles Team services 
  • Quit for Covid – stop smoking support. Smoking may increase the risks for those that get COVID-19 so there has never been a more important time to stop. #QuitForCovid offers information and advice for those that want to give up as well as links to our Healthy Lifestyles team for local support.
  • Time to Test – test now to beat HIV. COVID-19 has given us a unique opportunity to reduce, and potentially stop, the onward transmission of HIV. But anyone at risk must get tested before lockdown ends. Locally people can order an at-home test kit from Brighton & Hove Sexual Health & Contraception Service.
  • Protecting people in overheated homes. There is an increased risk of illness from overheated homes this year – particularly for the most vulnerable who are shielding at home.
