About Us

This is Healthy Telford. And this is what we are about.

Healthy Telford is run by Telford & Wrekin Council’s Public Health team.

This site is here to help people to look after their physical and mental health with information, tips and stories all local to Telford and Wrekin.

That means we are interested in helping people to:

  • Be active
  • Stop smoking
  • Eat better
  • Drink less
  • Lose weight
  • Raise a healthy family
  • Improve mental health and wellbeing

We think that health needs to be everybody’s business. So we work together and tell stories with people across the private, public and voluntary sector, on how we all work together to help people to live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.

If you have a story to tell, one about how you have lived a healthier life or helped others in Telford and Wrekin to do so, then we want hear from you. Please get in touch.
