The Lord Mayor of Norwich, Councillor Martin Schmierer stated:
“Dealing with obesity is one of the big health issues that we are facing, not just in Norfolk but across the country. I’m delighted to support any effort that deals with obesity and issues regarding weight for children across our county and wish the campaign every success going forward”
Sian Larrington, Head of Service, Norfolk Children and Young Peoples Services stated:
“We are thrilled to be launching our #NorfolkCan initiative during National Obesity Week - our long term vision is to be able to bring together families, organisations, schools and businesses across the county to think about how we can make Norfolk a healthy place for children and young people to grow up.
I really champion the families, our own clinicians, partner agencies and our Public Health commissioners who have enabled us to develop #NorfolkCan, but we now want to hear from anyone who would like to be involved in the future or who can contribute in any way to developing the pathway- we need you!"
