About livewell

What is livewell?

All 13 Essex Local Authorities and our partners have come together to collaborate on the health and wellbeing agenda and work towards achieving better health outcomes for people across Essex.

The livewell campaign was created to promote healthy messages and support everyone in Essex (communities, families and individuals) to help improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

Health and Wellbeing Strategies

Livewell guides 

We have identified six themes that we will use to deliver the health and wellbeing programme:

startwell – Giving children the best start in life.
We will endeavour to help young families have the best start in life.

staywell – Clinical wellbeing, a state of health.
We will work together with the community and professionals to ensure our residents have access to the best clinical services.

feelwell – A state of mental wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her potential and can cope with the normal stresses of life. We will improve the access to services that address mental wellbeing.

eatwell – Healthy eating means consuming the right type and quantity of food from all food groups in order to lead a healthy life. We will raise awareness across the district about healthier eating.

bewell – People of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities can benefit from being physically active.
We will encourage more people to undertake regular physical activity, which will in turn produce longer term health benefits

agewell – Plan now for the future, for a healthier retirement.
We will endeavour to encourage people to look at improving their health and wellbeing now, to be able to lead a better quality of life in the future. We will also encourage and provide opportunity for our elderly population to be more active during their retirement years.
