It has been designed, written, and produced by the Borough Council to help both families and individuals stay healthy amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The brochure was created to provide residents with advice and support with their overall health, which may have or could be impacted by these challenging and tough times.

Residents are supported in making positive changes to help improve mental and physical health, and covers physical exercise at home, sleep, and healthy eating.

It features the support organisations and networks which are available to help and offer assistance.

Borough residents are able to pick up copies as it has circulated across the borough in vaccination centres, GP surgeries, schools, parish councils, voluntary groups, and food banks.

Cllr. David Bill, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Health, said: “Our health and wellbeing is constantly being stretched in these difficult times and this booklet offers practical assistance for the whole family, from the very young to those who remain at home continuing to shield. 

“Keeping our mind and body active, looking after our diet and taking care of each is a priority and whilst currently we do not have easy access to gyms, exercise classes and some residents may not even be able to leave their home this booklet offers a wide range of guidance and support.

“I would urge residents to request a copy or when visiting any of the vaccination centres across the borough to pick one up.

“Feedback so far has been extremely positive and the booklet is being utilised by local organisations throughout the borough.”
