The Solihull Lifestyle Service, which includes Solihull’s Stop Smoking Service, is delivered by Gateway Family Services. In partnership with others, including a number of local community organisations, it offers tailored support for people across Solihull, based on your needs.

After an initial assessment, you’ll work with a Community Wellbeing Advisor and/or a Behaviour Change Advisor who will help you identify the lifestyle changes you can make, and then give you encouragement, motivation and practical help to make those changes.

You’ll get a personalised action plan to help you achieve your health and wellbeing goals, appointments made at a time and place to suit you, and lots of information about the local activities and groups available to you.
