Darnall Well Being Health & Wellbeing Workers

What is a Health & Wellbeing Worker?

Health & Wellbeing workers are skilled in working one to one to help you improve your health. They can help you to identify how your habits might affect your health and wellbeing. They then enable you to change your behaviour to improve your health. Health & Wellbeing workers are local people who know their community.
Health & Wellbeing workers can work with any adult who is thinking of making a healthy lifestyle change.

Health & Wellbeing workers are NOT personal trainers or physical instructors and do not give medical advice

Darnall Well Being Health & Wellbeing workers are friendly, understanding and supportive. This service is free and confidential.

If you want to become healthier but don’t know where to start, a Health & Wellbeing worker can point you in the right direction, and give you the information, encouragement and strategies to make and maintain that change.

They will help and encourage you to achieve and maintain a healthier lifestyle. You can self refer or ask your GP or other professional to refer you.
