A new service is set to help people recieve health and weightloss advice.

The Healthy Living Team at Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) has been created to continue and build upon the work done by the LCVS health trainer service.

In 2014/15 the service helped 582 clients through a six-eight week personal health plan.

Jan Gould-Martin, LCVS senior health and social care officer, said: “We were determined not to see the expertise and professionalism of the service lost and have therefore created this new-look team to deliver something we know is greatly needed in Lincolnshire.

“The record of LCVS health trainers speaks for itself – we know the service makes a real difference to people and helps improve and even prolong lives.

The Healthy Living Team is run by qualified 
health trainers from the former LCVS health trainer team.

Health can include one-to-one consultations with trainers, smoke cessation and identifying excercises that can benefit individuals.

The first session is free and following on from that one-to-one sessions cost from £20 each for up to one hour.

Remote support using text, email or phone is also available at £6 per month.

Other services are tailored and costs are available following discussion.
