The Living Well initiative has been launched through a wide range of projects with partners coming together under the Living Well brand, working together to help make it easier for everyone to live healthier lifestyles.
Bradford district faces rising levels of ill health from diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and many cancers that often occur as a result of unhealthy lifestyle behaviours. Through supporting people to live a healthier lifestyle today, Living Well aims to reduce the number of people in our district who suffer from preventable illnesses and enable people to live longer lives in good health.
Living Well programme
The Living Well programme brings together a wide range of local partners to coordinate resources that will help to improve the lifestyle behaviours of our communities.
Several of our projects are listed below and this list will be updated regularly as new initiatives commence, If you would like to learn more about the programme please do contact us.
Working with businesses
We are working closely with local businesses where you and your family work, learn, play and shop. We are supporting employers with simple and innovative ideas, to help make workplaces healthier - making it easier for you to make healthy choices when you’re out and about.
If your workplace isn’t listed, ask them to sign up! They will receive lots of free ideas and resources to support them to create a healthier workplace!
Working with food businesses and outlets
It can be difficult to make healthy choices when you’re away from home, so we are working with local food businesses and outlets, asking them to offer free tap water and healthier meal choices.
Living Well team and Service
Our aim is to support a large number of people across the Bradford district to make small changes to improve their wellbeing. Resources available through this website and elsewhere online, will support many people on their journey to make their lifestyles healthier. However, we do know that some people need a little extra support, guidance and motivation to make these changes and thats where our friendly Living Well team come in to support people on their journey to a healthier lifestyle.
