A new health and wellbeing hub which will provide a one-stop venue for a variety of services launches today.

Healthy Hubs are dedicated venues where people can get health services, support and advice all in one place, making it easier to get help with a range of physical and mental health issues.

Whether it’s stop smoking services, help to lose weight, mental health support, encouragement to get more active or even advice on how to cut down on your drinking - your Healthy Hub can help you.

Step Up Healthy Hub, situated in Oxhey Drive, South Oxhey, is funded by Hertfordshire County Council and is delivered in partnership with Three Rivers District Council.

The hub will offer coffee mornings, talks and activities every week, and the Step in Café will also be open every second Saturday of each month.

People will be able to make appointments or drop in to access the advice and support available.

Hertfordshire County Council’s director of public health, Jim McManus, said: "The Healthy Hubs are part of our district partnership programme, through which we have already invested £2.3million into health and wellbeing services across the county over the last four years.

"This new initiative will see a further £1million invested over the next two years to enable each district to establish a Healthy Hub in their area, making it easier for people to pop in and get the friendly, professional one-to-one support they need to improve their health and wellbeing."

Jane Drury, the new health and wellbeing officer at the Healthy Hub, said: "I’m excited to be part of this new project in Three Rivers which will expand the support available to our community and help to reduce health inequalities."
