Happy and Healthy Campaign


Creative Support has recently developed a health promotion team which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of staff and service users. This is the first health promotion campaign that’s been launched as part of Health and Wellbeing month this February. The campaign is focused on improving service users’ diets and increasing physical activity levels.

Get your hands on our Happy and Healthy Calendar

We will be sending out a ‘Happy and Healthy’ calendar in the post to all services (you can also find a pdf version in the link below) If you would like to order more printed copies please contact: health.promotion@creativesupport.co.uk The idea of the calendar is to do each day’s healthy task and then return the calendar to us once the four weeks have been completed. The calendar is full of healthy tips and activity ideas. We will also be posting more ideas throughout February on our blog and social media pages!

We also want to encourage people to become more active, so we have included a step tally for each day of the challenge. It is recommended that we do 10,000 steps per day, though it is important to take into account a person’s level of fitness and set a manageable step goal that is right for them. This can be logged via a smartphone, an Active 10 app (explained in more detail in the calendar), or we have a limited number of pedometers we can send out to service users if they don’t have a smart phone, or are a wheelchair user.

If you have any queries or would like to request printed copies of the ‘Happy and Healthy Calendars’ please contact Ciara Campbell on 0161 236 0829 or email health.promotion@creativesupport.co.uk. Let us know when you’re starting the calendar and send us pictures of your progress. This is not just for service users, staff can get involved as well. The Happy and Healthy campaign is about making small changes that will help improve your mood, health and wellbeing.
