Drink less support in Slough
Cutting down or stopping drinking is usually just the beginning, and most people will need some degree of help or a long-term plan to stay in control or completely alcohol-free.
Getting the right support can be crucial to maintaining control in the future. Only relying on family, friends or carers for this often is not enough.Slough wellbeing cloud

I just came to do shopping at Asda and saw the S4H van. The thing that surprised me was being able to have an NHS Health Check in a van, which was good as it was a drop-in session, with no need to book an appointment. I am 43 so I had started to think about my health more. Having an NHS Health Check made me realise that I am not that active, so I am going to join a gym.

We joined to find out how to be healthy as a family, the information, recipes and teachers were very good. This is a fantastic and lifestyle changing club for young children.

This has had an impact on my son’s learning, but also on his behaviour as well as he does not get frustrated all the time. I have also realised the food we ate did not help as we had takeaway on most nights, but now I cook fresh meals which has had health benefits for both me and my child as we are starting to lose weight.

Running has been so good at maintaining my stamina and physical/mental health and being out in the fresh air is a definite plus. The countryside and areas that you run become place you notice and enjoy, so when you discover something this good the benefits need to be shared.
