The City of Wolverhampton Council will be showcasing the help and support available to enable people to improve their health and wellbeing in a new social media campaign starting on Monday (8 October, 2018).

#WolvesWellbeing, which launches on the council's Type=links;Linkid=1397;Title=Twitter;Target=_blank; page, will feature real life case studies and profile a range of services designed to help improve the mental and physical health and wellbeing of people in Wolverhampton.

Councillor Hazel Malcolm, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "There are many ways in which the council and other organisations are helping people in Wolverhampton to improve their health and wellbeing.

"It's not just about keeping fit and healthy, stopping smoking, losing weight eating well and so on - factors like having the best start in life, an excellent education, a stable and rewarding job and a decent home in a thriving community also have a real influence not only how long a person is likely to live but also their quality of life.

"Our #WolvesWellbeing campaign is about highlighting these and more, and signposting people to the many opportunities which are available to them here in Wolverhampton which will help ensure they enjoy good mental and physical health and wellbeing."

The campaign will highlight a wide range of ways in which people can improve their health and wellbeing, either by themselves or with the help of organisations such as Adult Education Wolverhampton, Telecare, WV Active, the Carer Support Team and Meals on Wheels.

There will also be real life case studies while a number of organisations will be showcasing their services at the Civic Centre in St Peter's Square throughout the week.

To follow the campaign, use the hashtag #WolvesWellbeing on Twitter, or follow the City of Wolverhampton Council on Twitter @WolvesCouncil.

#WolvesWellbeing follows hot on the heels of July's successful #12DaysOfIndependence campaign, which used social media to showcase the help and support available to enable people in Wolverhampton to live more independently.
