Residents can access information on the support services available locally on a wide range of topics from anxiety and loneliness to back pain and weight management as well as details of the borough’s sports clubs.

One of the features of the website is helping residents improve or maintain their wellbeing.

The Five Ways To Wellbeing help's give people advice and suggestions on how to improve their wellbeing, the five categories are: Connect, Be active, Take notice, Keep learning and Give.

By clicking on one of the categories you can then select which age group you fit into, such as 'adults', 'young people' or 'parents' and more.

This then will give you specific advice based on your age group, for example the 'Connect' category offers the 'adult' group joining the Hertfordshire Ramblers as a way to connect with people, while the same category offers  'young people' YCH Services for Young People as a way to connect.

Sign up for the Healthy Hub’s monthly bulletin to keep up to date with all the latest health and wellbeing news and events.

Cllr Fiona Thomson, executive member for public health, governance and climate change said: “Thinking about our health and wellbeing is more important than ever during these difficult times and the Healthy Hub website is perfect for finding information and support on ways to better look after ourselves and our families.
