Help losing weight

The Family Weight Loss service supports families remotely over a period of 6-9 months to make small changes to their lifestyles by setting goals around food and physical activity, and will signpost to physical activity opportunities in their local area. It will also help families to recognise and address the wider determinants of health and lifestyle, and will signpost families to other useful services, support and information such as around mental health and wellbeing, food insecurity/cost of living, sleep, etc.


The service is for children and young people aged 4-19 years (up to aged 25 years for those with SEND) and their families who need some help with healthy weight and lifestyles. Families must be resident or registered with a GP practice or school in North Yorkshire (those who are not will be assessed on a case-by-case basis for suitability for referral).


Families can self-refer to the service by emailing active.health@brimhamsactive.co.uk or by telephoning Brimhams Active on 01423 556106.


Our local podiatry service is ready to accept self-referrals for a variety of foot care needs.
