Weight management support for the Portuguese community

In collaboration with Future Inclusions Organisation, one of our partners, we will be hosting a closed weight management group for the Portuguese community next month, following community members identifying the need for help with maintaining a healthy weight and getting physically active. Therefore, we are putting on bespoke sessions that will feature our weight management programme and our Get Help To Get Active service.

Working alongside Future Inclusions Organisation, a charity that supports Suffolk residents by providing life-skills training to disadvantaged communities, we adapted our programme to suit the community’s needs better. The group needed to be conducted face-to-face as community members did not have the equipment to join virtual groups, as well as making sure the programme was delivered in Portuguese to ensure there isn’t a language barrier.

Starting on Friday 13th August, the group will be co-delivered by Kate, one of our Adult Weight Management Practitioners, and Adama, our new NHS Health Checks Coordinator, who is of Portuguese heritage.

If you would like more information about this group or know anyone that would, please contact OneLife Suffolk at info@onelifesuffolk.co.uk or call us on 01473 718193.
