During the past year, the biggest supports to health and wellbeing have been:

  • Using technology for medical appointments,
  • Seeing friends and family (either as a support bubble or through video calling),
  • Being outdoors,
  • New hobbies such as DIY projects, art and crafts, and gardening.

When it comes to personal health and wellbeing goals for the next year, people have told us that they want to improve and maintain their fitness levels, lose weight, and improve their mental health. Lifting of lockdown restrictions is stated as the biggest support so that friends, family, and community groups can offer motivation and companionship.

We are running our survey until the end of April so there is still plenty of time to complete it. We are keen to hear from as many people across East Berkshire as possible so that we can get a better picture of which services to focus on. Join your voice with those who have already told us what matters most to them when it comes to their health and social care.
