Weight Stigma

Weight stigma is reported by people of all ages and backgrounds in the UK, and across the world. There is a need to improve public understanding of obesity and to increase our awareness of our weight related attitudes and behaviours. There are many factors that influence our attitudes towards weight including the media, healthcare, education and the places that we work. The consequences of stigma and discrimination can be wide ranging and very serious, demonstrating the need to intervene.

Weight Stigma Campaign

At OneLife, we are working across Suffolk with media, healthcare, education and workplaces to increase awareness and to identify strategies to reduce weight stigma and discrimination. As part of the campaign we have developed guidelines for the media, healthcare, education settings and workplaces to use in an attempt to reduce weight stigma and discrimination. There are also a number of workshops and webinars that will be delivered as part of the campaign that will invite people from the media, healthcare, education settings and workplaces. To find out more please email info@onelifesuffolk.co.uk

We are offering two workshops in 3 areas of the County (Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Lowestoft) for Health Care Professionals and another for those working with children, young people and families.
