Medway Council has opened a shop to give people advice on healthy eating, giving up smoking and tackling substance misuse.
The shop brings together a range of public health services and will also provide referrals for other support services such as mental health treatments.
Cllr David Brake, Medway Council’s portfolio holder for adult services, said: ‘Not only will you be able to get free advice on giving up smoking but the shop will be able to pass on information to customers on how to eat more healthily, the safe levels for drinking and even sexual health.
‘I am delighted Medway is leading the way on this and it really will give people who need advice the most an easy way to access information on a range of lifestyle issues under one roof.’
Experts will also offer advice on healthy menu planning, understanding food labelling and one-to-one sessions on how to stop smoking.
