Hertfordshire Healthy Hubs is a partnership between Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) and all ten district and borough councils across the county. The countywide service is funded by HCC and delivered in partnership with the local councils as part of the District Partnership programme.
With a focus on prevention, the Healthy Hubs act as a free one-stop-shop for health and wellbeing information, advice and support, making sure residents get the help and guidance that is right for them.
The hubs are able to take a whole-person holistic approach as they aim to improve the health and wellbeing of residents, making it easier to access a range of physical and mental health services.
The core Healthy Hub offer focuses on helping promote and direct residents towards a wide range of local services, from smoking cessation and weight management to mental health support.
Local hubs have been tailored to meet the health priorities and unique circumstances of each district. Both physical and virtual hubs will have professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to advise and support residents before signposting them to the appropriate service.
Collaborative working between district and borough councils and providers across the community and voluntary sector brings together a comprehensive range of services that are convenient, accessible and make it easy for residents to navigate their options.
