Who we are

The Bury Live Well Service compromises of four neighbourhood teams that focus on the needs and priorities of each neighbourhood. Each neighbourhood team is made up of Team Leads, Health and Wellness Coaches, Exercise Referral Officers and Wellbeing Coordinators.

Our teams will provide free personalised support. We believe in creating a healthier community where everyone can:

  • Start well
  • Live well
  • Age well

We promote healthy and active living and help people to make positive changes to their lifestyle. We offer a choice of face-to-face or telephone appointments.

Why we are here

We are here to offer support and inspiration so that everyone can own their health and wellbeing and choose a healthy, active and fulfilling life.

As we get older, there is a heightened risk of people developing long term conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or poor mental wellbeing. We help people:

  • Adopt a better lifestyle (to reduce the risk of developing one or more long term conditions)
  • Manage long term conditions (to help them stay as independent and healthy as possible, prevent complications and the need to go into hospital).

We have supported thousands of people across the Borough of Bury to reach a healthy weight; build more activity into their daily life; stop smoking; eat better; and generally improve their health and wellbeing. We are here to help people stay well, stay independent, and enjoy life for longer.
