Healthy Ambitions Suffolk
We are part of the Healthy Ambitions Suffolk (HAS) project, which aims to make Suffolk the healthiest county by 2028.
Launched in November 2008, it brings together the county’s leading public services alongside the private and independent sectors, community groups and individuals. The initiative aims to help everyone in the county enjoy longer, happier, healthier lives.
As part of Havebury’s role in this, we look after the wellbeing of our employees. In the HAS Better Health – Better Business Awards scheme, we were in receipt of a silver prize.
