A healthy body and mind means we can live life to the full

Better self care helps us take control of our own health and well-being. Whether we want to have a healthier lifestyle, to better manage our long-term problems, or enhance our mental well-being, simple changes can make a big difference.

Year of self care logo


The year of self care is not just a programme, but an invitation to think about different types of self-care. Each month will have lots of local information and events aimed at helping make positive changes; whatever our age, ability or state of health.

Eating healthily

We are what we eat. A good diet not only keeps us healthy, but helps look after our energy levels and even our mood. We’ll be getting advice out on how to eat and drink your way to good health.

Carer Wellbeing

Carers are relatives, friends or neighbours who look after or support people who are ill, frail or disabled, without being paid. We will be focusing on helping carers look after their own health.
