Weekly group nutrition support to help you make gradual changes towards a healthy lifestyle

Our nutritional sessions are all about supporting you to make changes for life. Giving you the tools and knowledge to make more informed decisions around food, we put this into real life terms whether that be tips for the weekly supermarket shop or being able to enjoy eating out.

Sessions are friendly and supportive surrounded by people with the same goals, wanting to make that change to feel better and improve their health.

What happens next?

A member of the team will talk you through the service, your eligibility, any previous attempts to lose weight, what your motivations are and the session options available to you. After your initial discussion on the phone, you will be booked in for a further phone call or online health assessment with your assigned Wellbeing Specialist Instructor

Once your health assessment has been completed you will start your free 12-week programme either face to face or online (or both). If you are successful in achieving an agreed weight-loss target (we usually aim for a 5% weight loss target), you will be entitled to a further free 12-week ‘Maintenance Programme’.

What happens after your first 12 weeks?

Our Maintenance Programme is available for clients who have shown dedication and commitment to achieve their weight loss goal (set in the initial assessment) over the 12 weeks.

The Maintenance Programme enables you to continue to be physically active and work towards further weight loss goals and/or maintenance. It is a condensed programme and does not include the free Slimming World offer, however you will receive free nutritional support from our specialist health team.

The programme is available for a further 12 weeks, giving you a total of 24 weeks free of charge.
