Council launches winter wellbeing campaign

Working alongside the local NHS, Royal Berkshire Hospital and partners in the voluntary sector, Reading Borough Council has launched a seven-week campaign to ‘Stay Well in Reading this Winter.’

With the cold winter nights now drawing in, the campaign aims to address some of the challenges we will all face over the coming weeks and how we can help ourselves, help others and be resilient to the pressures of the pandemic and the second national lockdown.

Each week have a different focus – starting with important messages around flu vaccinations, when you should call 999/111 and where to seek medical help and advice.

Other topics over the coming weeks will include:

-Self-help for mental and physical wellbeing

-Getting support for victims of domestic abuse

-Volunteering – how you can help support others

-Where to get financial help and support to stay warm

-Look out for messages on @ReadingCouncil social media channels and in the council’s eNewletter.
