RESIDENTS across the district are being urged to ‘think self care for life’ ahead of Self Care Week.

A number of events will give people access to Living Well advisors who can offer helpful information, offer free health MOTs and offer resources to help people stay well.

The organisation is appealing for everyone to join the Make One Change Challenge. The challenge involves making small changes to our everyday lives that can add up to make a big impact on your health and wellbeing. The changes are simple and easy to make; maybe cut down on sugar or alcohol, exercise more, watch less TV, or make more time to spend with family and friends. Use #MakeOneChange on social media to share the changes you are planning to make.

The full list of care days include: Airedale Shopping Centre, Keighley, on November 18 and 19, 10am – 2pm; Kirkgate Shopping Centre, Bradford, on November 20, 10am – 2pm and Broadway Shopping Centre, November 21 and 22, 10am – 2pm. Other attendees include: Keighley Healthy Living, Positive Minds, Groundworks, Green Doctors/Warm Homes Healthy People, Sharing Voices Bradford, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, BEEP (Bradford Encouraging Exercise in People) and more.

Sarah Muckle, Director of Public Health at Bradford Council said:

"Bradford District and Craven has been an active participant in Self Care Week since 2012 this year we have an emphasis on encouraging people to take part in the Make One Change Challenge.

"Whether it’s help on improving your own health, manage a long term health condition or advice on staying well this winter, these events will offer practical help and advice for people across our district."

These events are organised by Living Well, a joint programme between the Council and the three NHS Bradford district and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
