Weight management

BSL Support

Losing weight can help you to feel happier, more confident and dramatically improve your health. If you are a Newham resident, you can get help to lose weight today, free of charge.

Live Well Newham is a free 12-week weight management programme that supports you to achieve long-term behaviour change by providing personalised support to help you: 

  • Eat well
  • Move more
  • Take charge of how you think, eat and sleep.

You will have the chance to be part of a community with similar weight-loss goals, sharing experiences and benefit from the informal support that comes with group membership.

Depending on your preference, you can attend female only, male only, or mixed group sessions. You can also access sessions in a range of different languages.
