About the Healthy Hub
What is the Young People's Healthy Hub?
Your Young People’s Healthy Hub is the place to go for all your health and wellbeing needs. We are here to support you. We can provide support and advice for your mental, emotional, physical or lifestyle related needs.
Perhaps you may want help in getting more active or you just generally feel down and alone and don’t know where to start. Whatever your need might be, the Young People’s Healthy Hub can connect you with local support.
If you want support from the hub and want to find out more information about how we can help, get in touch with the Young People's Healthy Hub.

5 Ways To Wellbeing
Research shows that there are 5 ways we can boost our mood and improve our wellbeing.
Spending time with friends or family helps keep relationships happy and healthy, which is great for our wellbeing. Hertfordshire Mind Network's Young People's Online Hangout is a way to socially connect with other young people.
Regular physical activity is great for our mental wellbeing and can boost your mood. We can suggest ways that you can get active.
Being in the moment, enjoying what is around you and taking the time to notice how you or other people around you are feeling can really help improve your wellbeing. Why not try out meditation using the Headspace app.
Learning new skills and increasing your knowledge can help keep your brain active, which feeds into an improved wellbeing. Our cooking programmes promote healthy eating.
Carrying out thoughtful gestures, or acts of kindness can feel great and help improve our mood. You can get involved with our training programmes and volunteering opportunities.
Become a sponsor
There’s nothing more important to us than achieving our health and wellbeing ambitions for young people aged 11-16 years old living in Stevenage.
The Young People’s Healthy Hub is looking for influential partners to help sustain the project beyond the two year allocated funding grant. We’re particularly keen to hear from companies in the STEM or Digital Technology space.
If your company is interested in serving as an official sponsor, we’d like to hear from you so please contact us.
The Hertfordshire Healthy Hub is funded by the Public Health District Partnership and aims to deliver a Healthy Hub in every District and Borough of Hertfordshire, including a Young People’s Healthy Hub in Stevenage.
Prevention and encouraging people to be more proactive about their health and wellbeing is central to the vision of the Healthy Stevenage Strategy 2018-2022, A Healthier Future: STP for Herts & West Essex (2016-2021) and the NHS Five Year Forward View.
