Healthy Futures – Richmondshire is delivered in small groups with like-minded people. The groups are fun and interactive with a physical activity component and workshop on healthy eating every week. We offer a FREE Service lasting up to 24 weeks to support adults to lose weight, move more and maintain long term weight loss for clients living and/or working in Richmondshire.
Who is the service for?
Fully funded by North Yorkshire County Council Public Health.
Our 1 to 1 assessment clinics are held at IPS Innovate Building, Colburn Business Park, Chartermark Way, Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire, DL9 4QT.
Our group sessions are held at several places across Richmondshire and our advisors will discuss these with you at your assessment.
If you are interested please contact us and a member of the Healthy Futures – Richmondshire team will call you to talk 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 health assessment with your assigned Weight Management Advisor.
Once your health assessment has been completed you will start your FREE 12 week programme at a venue and time that most suits you.
If you are successful in achieving an agreed weight loss target you will be entitled to a further FREE 12 week maintenance programme.
That’s ok, we know that things come up meaning we might need to miss a week. If this happens to you, please let us know and we can give the information so you do don’t miss out. For best results, we ask that you come to at least 10 sessions.
For whatever reason you don’t achieve 5% weight loss please don’t give up, you have put in so much effort and made some great progress, so keep going. Sadly though you will not be able to continue to the next stage and will signpost you on to other services to support you in continuing your lifestyle changes. Please remember the friendship and support you made is still available along with keeping an eye on our website, facebook page and twitter. If you are still wanting to attend our weekly groups please speak to one of the team as for a small charge we may be able to accommodate you.
As much as we wish we could allow this service, sadly you cannot attend to be weighed only. Healthy Futures works because of the commitment to be involved in the exercise session and workshop/education group afterwards. As a group, we ask that you stay for the whole session.
