Healthy You Can Help

Healthy You is a free service for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough residents who are looking to make changes to their lifestyle.

So, whether you want help to stop smoking, lead a more active lifestyle, lose some weight, or simply take advantage of the NHS Health Checks they offer, Healthy You – funded by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council – can help you.

Here's two schemes to help those looking to stop smoking, or simply to adopt a healthier lifestyle.


Swap to Stop

The Swap to Stop scheme supports adult smokers (over 18) to quit their cigarettes for a free vape starter kit as part of a twelve-week programme of support. Adult smokers signing up to the programme can also benefit from other smoking treatments such as NRT to help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Swap to Stop is part of a series of new measures to help the Government meet its ambition of being smokefree by 2030 – reducing smoking rates to 5% or less.

  • Healthy eating
  • Losing weight
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Reducing stress
