The latest phase in a campaign to make Plymouth a healthier and happier city begins today.

Thrive Plymouth is a 10-year programme which aims to narrow the gap in the health status between people in the city.

The project is entering its fourth year and monitors lifestyle behaviours like smoking, drinking, diet and inactivity.

The latest phase will focus on improving mental well-being by promoting the five ways to wellbeing in Plymouth.

There is currently a considerable life expectancy gap between different communities in Plymouth. Closing that gap is crucial to the city thriving and an outstanding quality of life being enjoyed by everyone.
