Our FREE OneLife Suffolk Family and Young Peoples Service offers 12 months’ worth of support for children and young people from the age of 5 to 18 years, alongside their families, who would like to achieve a healthier lifestyle and maintain a healthier weight.
For the first ten weeks, we invite the whole family to attend the weekly 90-minute sessions (currently delivered via Zoom for COVID safety). These sessions, run by trained practitioners, will show you the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and allow the children to join in with some interactive sessions, physical activity and games. It’s also a great way to make new friends.
OneLife Suffolk offer 3 levels of support – to find out more, click here. We take an approach that focuses more on the importance of healthy lifestyles, where there are no unrealistic expectations.
The OneLife Suffolk KIDS Club is for the whole family. When your children are between the ages of 5-11, you play an essential role in making sure they live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight.
You will join 12 weekly 90-minute group sessions to learn about;
The group sessions are designed to educate and guide you to make healthy lifestyle habits normal within your family. And because its the KIDS club, each session includes fun play and activity for the children.
Alongside the 12 group sessions, the programme also includes additional physical activity sessions. You can drop off your children for an hour of physical challenges and fun games, helping get them more active and make new friends.
This programme puts more onus on the young person taking more responsibility for maintaining a healthy way of life. They will be actively involved in all workshops relating to nutrition, weight management and health, alongside their parents.
Each of the 12 weekly group sessions concentrate on a particular topic, which is tailored for each specific group.
This section of the programme also includes a weekly drop-off physical activity session. This will either be held at the same venue as the group session, or at a gym to encourage the use of leisure facilities available to older children.
We know how much you worry about your child’s health and we understand why you might be worried to ask for help. The OneLife Suffolk Families and Young People’s service will provide you with the support and guidance you are looking for.
