We all want to get off the couch to set a healthier routine but with so much information out there, it can be hard to know where to start or where to go to get trusted and reliable information.
Check out our campaign page which gives simple easy steps to help you create a new healthy habit, eat better, get more physically active, and learn how to take care of your mental wellbeing.
So Let's Get Set and you could soon be on your way to a healthier routine.
Healthy Cities and Counties is a programme which:
Local Authorities, through their Local Community Development Committee, can apply to join the National Healthy Cities and Counties of Ireland Network using WHO criteria that are based on the European health policy framework, Health 2020.
These criteria set an international quality standard. There are national networks in 20 countries in the WHO European Region, bringing together more than 1,400 cities and towns.
Local authorities in your county are offering and promoting a range of services, initiatives and activities to enable you to stay connected, stay fit and active and look after your mental health and wellbeing.
Visit your local authority website for more information on what’s happening in your area.
