Health and Wellbeing Lifestyle Services

As part of our commitment to activate your city, lives and neighbourhood, we’ve partnered with local physical activity, health and wellbeing service providers to help you take those first steps towards living a better lifestyle and stay on top of your health needs.

Whether you want to lose weight, get fit, improve your mental health, or meet new people there is support out there for you. Responses from our Active Communities survey has shown that for the people who live and work in Westminster, prioritising physical health and wellbeing can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming.

That’s why we have compiled a list of support services to guide you towards your goals and be a better version of yourself.
