Health and physical activity come hand in hand and we know the importance of preventing physical and mental health issues later in life as Inactivity has one of the biggest financial impacts on the National Health Service. The proportion of adults who are overweight or obese in Wrexham is higher than the Welsh average with 59% of the population with an excess weight. Across Wrexham, we work with Wales Public Health Team to support where we can to improve the health of local people.
We support local health programmes including the National Exercise Referral Scheme. Our staffs across all of our local facilities are trained to encourage everyone who wants to improve their health into an opportunity for them.
