Who is Crawley Wellbeing?
Crawley Wellbeing is a free, friendly and impartial service from your local authority, the NHS and other partners. Each district and borough council (local authority) in West Sussex has its own Wellbeing service. They are all run in partnership with West Sussex County Council and the local NHS.

We can help you to find local wellbeing information and services. You can also get support for things like weight management, getting your family fitter, doing some regular exercise, dealing with stress, kicking a habit, or simply improving your general wellbeing.

If you would like to access our service, the first step would be to contact us, either by phone on 01293 585317, or email email@example.com, alternatively simply pop into our office based at the K2 Crawley.
