Tackling obesity in school

Supporting young people aged between 8 and 16 who are suffering from obesity, particularly where it affects their ability to achieve educationally, the project operates on a self-referral basis. A professionally qualified tutor liaises with pupils, parents and schools to provide support in both a one-to-one and group environment encouraging exercise and healthy eating. The results are higher attendance levels and improved educational achievement, with an outcome of increased self esteem.
