The service is for anyone who;

  • Lives in Norfolk

You can work out a child or young person’s BMI centile by using the NHS BMI calculator. Remember to click the Child tab on the calculator.

    They will get to know you and your family. Together you will look at;

    • Where you are now and where you would like to be.
    • What small steps you can take to reach your goal and make a plan which fits your family.
    • Review the plan regularly  with you  to see if you are on the right track - or if we need to try something different.
    • Help you find ways to maintain your new healthy habits.

    • Support to plan and manage change as a family –skills you can use again whenever you need to.
    • Regular contact with a Healthy Lifestyles Coach – this helps develop and strengthen motivation to change.
    • Working together to identify areas for change- support tailored to your families needs.
    • Continued support until the new behaviours become a habit.
    • Coaches work with the whole family – it is helpful for everyone’s ideas and feelings to be heard.
