Havering Learning disability weight management


Everyone Active in partnership with Sport for Confidence are launching a Learning Disability Weight management programme. This service will have two pilot programmes and held at the Harrow Lodge Leisure Centre and will look to continue throughout 2022-23. 

The programme is a 12 week face to face programme for individuals with mild to moderate learning disabilities with a BMI between 25 and 40, family members will be encouraged to attend the programme alongside the individual to support them. The programme is led by a weight management specialist and an occupational therapist. Referral is either self-referral or through family members and healthcare professionals.  To measure success there will be a qualitative survey on healthy behaviours as well as of pre and post programme measurements.

The first programme is due to start from 17 March 2022, Thursdays 1.30-3.30pm
