FREE Healthy Families Programme

Healthy families is a fun, friendly, healthy lifestyle programme for children, young people and their families. The FREE programme takes place over 5 or 10 weeks and is designed to encourage weight management through healthy eating and physical activity.

The service is delivered by an experienced, approachable, professional and friendly team using the ‘Change 4 Life’ healthy living messages.

Each week will consist of a fun 45-minute physical activity session and a 45-minute healthy lifestyle session.

In order to be eligible for this free programme, one or more of the children in the family must have a high BMI (25<) and must not have an eating disorder.

In case your child is struggling to reach or keep a healthy weight, we would like to invite your Family to join us.

Our first 5 weeks of Healthy Families Weight Management Programme is starting in January 2023.

Sessions will be delivered in the Link Centre, Whitehill Way, Westlea, Swindon, SN5 7DL, with Welcome Sessions being held on;

Tuesday 10th January 5pm-6.30pm: Healthy Families Juniors (for 5-11 year-olds)

Wednesday 11th January 5pm-6.30pm: Healthy Families Seniors (for 11-16-year-olds)

Siblings are welcome to join.

On the Welcome Sessions, you and your family can find out more about the exciting 5 week
programme and the children will get to meet the Team and take part in a fun inclusive trampoline
session. You can then decide if you wish to continue and sign up for 5 or 10 weeks.

During the programme you will also receive some free gifts including trampoline socks, a Water
Bottle and Gift Vouchers.
