We have been awarded funding by Lancashire County Council’s Public Health department to provide an adult weight management plan for people classed as overweight or obese in Wyre. We are delighted to be working alongside Slimming World® to provide access to 12 week funded programmes for Wyre residents age over 18 with a BMI between 30 - 45.
Managing weight is key to reducing other health risks and we want to work with health professionals to offer a solution. Slimming World® is a well-established organisation with an effective evidence based programme focusing on nutrition, physical activity and behaviour change. Their consultants offer support, friendship and inspiration in a virtual or in person group.
