Weight management service
Take that step
Take that step is a free 12 week structured adult weight management programme which is fully funded by North Yorkshire County Council Public Health and includes:
1-2-1 support from a qualified health and wellbeing officer
These sessions will take place at one of the four leisure centres in Hambleton (Bedale, Northallerton, Stokesley and Thirsk and Sowerby leisure centre) and all eligible individuals will receive free access to physical activity sessions.
If individuals successfully complete the 12 weeks and achieve an agreed weight loss target they will be entitled to a further free 12 weeks maintenance programme.
How to apply
If you are eligible based on the information above and you can commit to 24 weeks then contact the Take That Step team:
A member of the Take That Step team will talk you through the service, check your eligibility and discuss what options are available to you.
What happens next?
If you are eligible you will be booked in for an individual assessment with one of the Health and Wellbeing Officers. This will take place at one of the Leisure Centres. Once this assessment has been completed you will start your 12 week programme.
What will happen if I successfully lose weight in those 12 weeks?
You will be given the opportunity to take part in a 12 week maintenance programme free of charge.
What will happen if I don’t lose weight in those 12 weeks?
The Health and Wellbeing Officers will offer you support throughout these 12 weeks to try and ensure you meet your agreed goal. If you don’t meet your goal you won’t be able to continue with the programme and you will have to wait six months before you can start again.
