Services and support to help people in Trafford live a healthier life

There are services to help people quit smoking, achieve a healthier weight, be more physically active, better manage drug or alcohol problems, and deal with emotional and mental health problems. This support can be self-help using websites and online tools, telephone help lines and face-to-face meetings.

The national One You website provides motivational support to change to a more healthy lifestyle, including information, advice and apps.
