Weight management

BSL Support

Losing weight can help you to feel happier, more confident and can dramatically improve your health. And now Newham residents can get free help to lose weight today.

‘Live Well Newham’ is a 12-week weight management programme that achieves long-term behaviour change with personalised support combining nutrition, physical activity and psychology. 

Newham Newsletter April 2021

While Covid restrictions are in place, all support (one-on-one or group-based) will be provided online or over the telephone. With online group-based support you will have the chance to be part of a team of people with similar weight-loss goals, sharing experiences and benefitting from the informal support that comes with group membership. 

Once it is safe to do so, face-to-face sessions will be available across a number of locations across the borough.

Who’s eligible? 

All Newham residents aged 18 or above that are classed as overweight or obese (based on an estimate of Body Mass Index or ‘BMI’). If you don't know your BMI, don’t worry: just complete the registration form as best as you can or call 0333 577 3010 for a chat with an advisor.
