Live Well Greenwich

From food to money to socialising, all sorts of things in life affect our health and wellbeing. Live Well Greenwich offers signposting and support to get you the help you need to improve your health.

Live Well Greenwich is commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and delivered by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), 6 days a week.

Call the Live Well Line on 0800 470 483 to speak to a Health Improvement advisor. Lines open 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.

It has humble beginnings, originally commissioned to support the Greenwich Get Active physical activity programme and the Kick the Habit smoking cessation programme. Over the years, it has expanded to offer a single point of access; an all inclusive service to support residents and refer them to a range of community programmes across the borough. Live Well Greenwich now acts as the foundation for all of our Health Improvement work at CACT.

Support is available through our free Live Well helpline, where you can connect with local, trained health and wellbeing advisors.

The Live Well team can help with:

  • Eating well
  • Moving more
  • Social and community activities
  • Stopping smoking
  • Drinking less
  • Housing needs
  • Money, debt and benefit advice
  • Employment and training
  • Support for managing your long term condition

Health Improvement advisors are able to provide signposting and support to help you live well, including referring and booking onto any services they may need. This includes referring to a network of local Live Well Coaches, who develop and maintain relationships with clients, motivating them towards leading healthier lifestyles. 

Live Well Coaches can offer up to six 45-minute sessions to help implement lasting lifestyle change and help people long term. These sessions take place within GP surgeries around the borough. To self-refer for the service, call or fill in the online referral form.

To find health, wellbeing, social care and community information and services local to you, head to the Greenwich Community Directory.

Live Well Greenwich is available to any residents in the Royal Borough of Greenwich who feel they could benefit. Please note this service is not for patients requiring mental health crisis support.
