World Health Day 2022: How do CACT programmes benefit wellbeing?

All sorts of things affect our Health and Wellbeing. Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) are commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich to work with you to help you find things in the local area that can improve your health and happiness.

By calling the free Live Well Greenwich line on 0800 470 4831, you can speak to one of our friendly health advisors who will listen, chat, offer advice and recommend or refer you to a range of community activities that you may find beneficial or valuable.

Whether you’d like to improve your finances or find a new activity to get involved in, Live Well can help. Our health advisors have your wellbeing in mind. We can recommend some healthy activities and let you know what’s available for you in the local area.

Live Well is completely collaborative. Our health advisors work alongside you and find ways to support you so that you can really feel the benefits, take control of your own wellbeing and feel happier in the long term.

There are lots of ways that Live Well can help wellbeing. Through the helpline, but also through the Health Improvement programmes we run, that you can get involved in.

We love getting groups together, socialising and supporting each other. One example of this that we are really proud of is our walks. For people who would like to explore South London's green spaces, or see a new part of the local area, one of our walks with Greenwich Get Walking might be a good fit. They’re free, guided walks with a group which is fantastic for simply getting outside and enjoying time with others. Most of our walks are around an hour, so they’re also great for busy people.

Live Well can also support you with finances and employment. We can give advice about saving money and keeping bills down, or help you find a new fulfilling career by connecting you with a training course or help you with writing a CV.

You don’t need to be facing a huge issue to get in touch with Live Well. Everything affects our wellbeing, so you really can ask our team of health improvement advisors anything. If it’s a new area, we’ll explore and research that together, working with you to improve your health. 

Live Well is there for everyone. For your #HealthierTomorrow, get in touch!

Call the Live Well Line on 0800 470 483 to speak to a health advisor. Lines open 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday. To find health, wellbeing, social care and community information and services local to you, head to the Greenwich Community Directory.
