Health and wellbeing can mean different things to different people, but health itself is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. We are aiming to achieve a Healthier Brentwood. Healthier means having or enjoying good health and a sound and vigorous mentality.
Brentwood Borough Council's priorities for a healthier Brentwood are contained in our Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The Council's Health & Wellbeing Board meet four times a year and are focused on four priority issues for Brentwood:
- Improving Older People's Health
- Reducing cardio-vascular disease through reductions in obesity
- Increasing uptake of vaccinations
- The Mental Health Challenge
Regular walking can:
- Reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol
- Aid weight loss
- De-stress and relax
- Improve Stamina and endurance
- Strengthen bones
Parkrun is held at Weald Park. You can run for FREE on Saturdays by registering at www.parkrun.org.uk/brentwood
Active Essex has an activity finder if you are looking for new ways of getting active in the area.
Clubs and activities can be found on the Sports England funded website Spogo. You can search by area, activity or distance from home and even find a buddy to train with. It's always easier to start a new exercise with others in the same boat.
Further information can be found in our Sports and Activities section of the website.
Please see our Older People section for information on the different services available for the elderly.
