Wellbeing MOT service

Released: Tuesday, 29 January 2019

Stuck in the mud with your New Year's Resolutions? Want help setting smaller, realistic ones that you can keep?

Adur & Worthing Councils run a free 'Wellbeing MOT' service to give residents free, one-to-one help and support to help them make healthier lifestyle changes.

Councillor Val Turner, Worthing Borough Council's Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing, signed up to one of the MOTs to experience the service first hand. She was joined by her husband Councillor Bryan Turner, who sits on both Worthing Borough and West Sussex County Councils.

Wellbeing Advisor Michelle Turnbull ran both councillors through the check list, which assesses weight, body fat percentage, hydration levels, emotional health and current activity and lifestyle.

Cllr Val Turner said:

“The checks were relaxed and helpful rather than critical - which was quite a relief! The emphasis was on small, manageable changes, like walking more, and eating a few less carbs! I'd encourage any Adur or Worthing resident to take advantage of the service, and not just in January but throughout the year.”

Cllr Bryan Turner, who is also Chair of Health and Adult Social Care Select Scrutiny Committee (HASC) for West Sussex, said:

“This is a fantastic service available to residents locally. Through all ages, particularly as we get older, small lifestyle changes can make a big difference to our overall health and I would urge more people to take advantage of the checks.'

West Sussex Wellbeing is a service developed by West Sussex County Council (WSCC) in partnership working with District and Borough Councils within West Sussex.

Adur & Worthing Councils has been commissioned by WSCC to provide the Adur & Worthing Wellbeing Hubs service, helping residents to access wellbeing information and services.
