Active Start

Active Start is for anyone who wants their family to feel healthier and be more active.

We will help you get healthier, more nutritious foods into your family’s diet and look at building up exercise within the daily routine of your family life.

The Active Start project aims to -

  • support families to achieve healthy lifestyle goals
  • utilise motivational support
  • work in partnership to set achievable targets
  • celebrate individual successes

HENRY – Growing Up Programme

The HENRY group programme gives parents the tools and skills they need for a healthy family lifestyle.

Sessions are suitable for parents and carers of children from 5 to 11 years old. HENRY helps parents and carers think about how they can help their families be healthier and more active.

It covers 5 main themes -

  • parenting
  • how we eat
  • what we eat
  • being active
  • emotional wellbeing

We also offer a HENRY Right from the Start Programme which is ideal for families who have babies and children aged 0 to 5 years.

You will be contacted by the service following your child being weighed at school by the National Child Measuring Programme (in both reception and year 6) or you can contact us via -
