Hampshire Fire and Rescue
Child obesity is a problem that puts a strain on healthcare providers particularly in more deprived areas. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s ‘A Better Me’ programme is aimed at youngsters who are on the road to health problems in later life and makes them realise that a healthy body means a healthy mind.
Falls at home by older people are an obvious concern and they account for a high percentage of hospital admissions. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s aim is to assist in reducing the demand on Health Services. Find out about one of their falls prevention initiatives, a course designed to help older people be happy, healthy and remain in their home safely.
