Health and Wellbeing

Local information and services

Welcome to your July Health and Wellbeing update that's jam-packed with lots of helpful tips, free courses and useful resources to help you improve your health and wellbeing.

With the warm weather we've been experiencing you are probably spending more time outdoors, so it's important to make sure you are sun aware.

The World UV App, developed by the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) and the Met Office, is a free app that gives live UV ratings anywhere in the world. Knowing the UV level in your location is a useful tool in helping you keep an eye on the sun's rays and being aware when they reach harmful levels. 

Calling all men...

Volunteering and its surprising benefits


Did you know that volunteering makes you happier and healthier?

It’s a fact - volunteering can help reduce stress, help you find friends, connect you with your community, provide opportunities to learn new skills and even advance your career.

You might think that you don’t have time to volunteer in your busy life, but, it doesn’t have to be a huge amount of time or a long term commitment.   In fact recent data shows that over 20 million people in the UK volunteered with a group, club or community organisation in 2017/18.  (NCVO Almanac, 2019)

Why not talk to the Voluntary Sector Support team to find the right volunteering opportunity that fits in with your life. They have over 90 opportunities to choose from.

Voluntary Sector Support is a service provided by our Community Development team and exists to support a vibrant and independent voluntary sector across the Horsham district.

Doing good is good for you.
