WellBalanced courses help to prevent falls

Are you over 65 and unsteady on your feet? Have you experienced a fall or want to prevent one from happening?

Our Wellbeing Team organise WellBalanced courses of balance and strengthening exercises in Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath to help people to become stronger and more stable. The courses last for 24 weeks and are run by qualified instructors who are experienced in postural stability and falls prevention, so you will be in safe hands.

The course costs just £1 per class but places are only available by referral. If you think you would benefit from the course then you can ask your GP or Practice Nurse to refer you to Mid Sussex Wellbeing.

For more information about the WellBalanced courses visit http://midsussexwellbalanced.online/ email wellbeing@midsussex.gov.uk or call 01444 477191.

Your Energy SussexCouncils in Sussex have joined together to help local people to pay less for their gas and electricity.

The Your Energy Sussex initiative is led by West Sussex County Council, with support from local District and Borough Councils. There are no dividends to shareholders or bonuses to Directors because Your Energy Sussex is owned by Sussex Councils and, as a ‘not-for-profit’ company. Your Energy Sussex uses surplus income to help local people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.

In addition to providing cheap local energy, Your Energy Sussex invests in renewable energy projects and because the partnership uses local installers this creates investment and job opportunities for people across Sussex.

The latest industry figures show that just 25% of people changed their energy tariff or supplier in the last year. That means 75% of people are likely to be on the most expensive 'standard variable' tariff, paying way over the odds for their energy and could save up to £300 by switching.

We want more people in Mid Sussex to switch and pay less for their energy. Your Energy Sussex offers straightforward and honest advice to customers and energy prices that are always fair and competitive.
