Enable your health

Enable is a free, fun and friendly programme delivered by nutritionists and lifestyle coaches which supports you to lose weight and keep it off. You will have a personalised assessment followed by a 12 week intensive weekly programme.


Our sessions are delivered in the health centres and a range of community venues. Classes are 90 minutes long - 45 minutes nutrition and 45 minutes exercise. You can then ‘check in and chat’ at any of our ongoing sessions so our staff can find out how you are getting on and provide additional support.

Families attend eight weekly sessions followed by monthly ‘Moving Forward’ groups to check progress and for support.

The sessions are based on healthy choices, and cover portion sizes, fussy eating and lots of practical activities. Small changes add up to big health benefits.
