Still supporting community health and wellbeing
NICHS is continuing to provide a range of health promotion information to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic although, due to the virus, all face-to-face services like talks and health checks remain suspended during the lockdown period. In the meantime, communities can access a variety of resources on our website and across our digital platforms. This includes our Online Health Checks and Talks.
We’re committed to ensuring that local communities keep getting the information they need to live healthy and active lives. This means they can make informed choices and help to prevent serious illnesses like chest, heart and stroke conditions. We’re therefore still working in partnership with different NI agencies to improve health and reduce inequalities.
Our innovative face to face public health activities might be paused for now but we’re still here to support you.
Almost 90% of our funds come from you, however, so your donations right now are more crucial than ever if we’re to keep ‘Caring through COVID’ and delivering our vital services.

- Healthy eating
- Physical activity
- Heart Health

Risk factors linked to chest, heart and stroke:
