Livewell in the Braintree District

What is the Livewell Campaign?


The Livewell campaign has been set up to help reduce levels of adult obesity, frailty and poor mental health. Mid Essex health profiles show that in the Braintree District, there are a higher than average number of obese adults and older people suffering from hip fractures.

Livewell Bulletin 

This Health and Wellbeing bulletin will be produced on a bi yearly basis to update you on the work of the Braintree District Council's Health and Wellbeing Panel and its partners.

We send a regular health and wellbeing newsletter, to keep you up to date with health and wellbeing initiatives and events in the Braintree District - sign up here.

Who is involved in the livewell campaign?

The livewell programme focuses upon working with 13 local authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups and a number of health partners.

All 13 Essex local authorities have come together to contribute to the Livewell website which can help residents to eat well, get more active and guide you to find the support you need, to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The website has an interactive page where you can filter activities and events by location and discover what is happening near you, from parkrun, dementia-friendly fitness classes to Meet up Mondays.  You can also get guidance on nutrition, local support to help you lose weight, healthy recipe ideas and where to TuckIN to a healthier takeaway. 

Because mental wellness is as important as physical wellness, the website has some useful mental wellbeing advice and details of where to go if you need mental health support in Essex.
