Welcome to our new website

Welcome to our new website, which is a countywide project to get Essex healthy!

It sees all local authorities and health partners work collaboratively for the first time to promote public health advice tailored to the needs of the local population.

Our website was officially launched on Monday 8th January 2018 and acts as the countywide one stop shop for everything residents need to know about local health initiatives and activities in Essex.

One of the website’s aims is to encourage Essex residents to be more active and to make healthier lifestyle choices for themselves and their families. The website will focus on the issues that are prevalent in the county so that issues affecting the 12 local authority areas can be tackled more effectively.

Take the #21 challenges! 
To celebrate the launch of the website, we are encouraging you to take part in a number of #21 challenges – a nod to the fact that it takes 21 days to break or create a new habit. Find out more on @livewelllocal on Twitter or @Livewell Campaign on Facebook.
