Arun Wellbeing supports you to improve your health and wellbeing by helping you and your family to get more active, eat more healthily, or simply improve your general wellbeing.

By making these kinds of lifestyle changes you can reduce your risk of contracting cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some preventable cancers. 

Arun Wellbeing is a friendly and impartial service brought to you by Arun District Council in partnership with West Sussex County Council.  Arun Wellbeing does not charge residents for any of its services.  There are similar Wellbeing services in all the District and Borough areas across West Sussex and you can visit the service nearest to where you live or work.

You can find more information about the services we provide under the section headed “Your Local Wellbeing Hub” on the home page, and details about how to contact us and where to find us on the Contact Us page. 

Local NHS and social care services and information

The Wellbeing services do not provide healthcare or social care support or advice. For these services the following places can help.

Prevention Assessment Teams

Prevention Assessment Teams are made up of health advisers (nurses), social care staff and people from the voluntary sector. They aim to help people living locally to stay healthy and remain independent. Normally, they work with people who do not receive services from specialist health care teams or social care services.

They can work with you or your carer and undertake an holistic assessment of your household. This will help identify what support might be required to keep you or your carer independent and prevent or delay the need for more intensive services. They will help you get to the right services for you.

Contact your local Prevention Assessment Team if you think they may be able to help. You can also complete our Wellbeing Self Assessment tool to help find the right service for you.

NHS Website

The NHS website has lots of information about specific health conditions and services. You can also search for health services near you, such as GPs (family doctors), dentists, pharmacies and NHS walk-in centres. Visit the NHS Website

Healthwatch West Sussex

If you have been on the NHS website  and can’t find the right information, try your local Healthwatch, which provides advice, information and help on health services available in our local area.

You can contact Healthwatch West Sussex by calling 0300 012 0122 or emailing westsussexlink@makesachange.org.uk (calls cost the same as to ’01’ and ’02’ numbers)
