Our Hackney Services
In Hackney, we’re dedicated to helping children stay healthy and a major part of that is ensuring they are at a healthy weight. Childhood obesity all over the country is increasing every year and eight out of ten obese children go on to become obese adults, which brings with it all sorts of health risks. These include heart disease, strokes and type 2 diabetes.
Our child weight management service is provided in partnership with Hackney Borough Council and focuses on educating you and your family on the best way to make long-term, permanent changes to your lifestyle and behaviour.
These include giving you and your family advice and the confidence on how to cook more healthily, as well as giving you access to physical activity services. The programme is structured over a 12 month period, with progress checks at three, six and 12 months.
You’ll find everything you need to know about our services here on our website, as well as where you can find events, activities and services near you.
