Eat 4 Health (E4H) offers a free weight management programme to support people in losing weight and, more importantly, keeping it off.

Courses are delivered in group settings and are open to residents aged 16 years and over who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 25.

The programme runs across 10 free weekly sessions at a variety of local community venues. Each session lasts one and a half hours and includes an interactive nutrition workshop and an exercise session.

The E4H qualified instructor will help you to understand various food topics and will support you to become more physically active.  All exercise sessions are tailored to your ability, so everyone can take part.

E4H is offered by West Berkshire Council in partnership with Solutions 4 Health.


If you're looking for additional help after attending E4H sessions, or want to try something different, INSPIRE is a weight loss support help group.  It's  currently based in Reading, but will be setting up in West Berkshire soon.

It allows people to get together to talk, share experiences and explore topics around weight loss, including areas such as nutrition, exercise and the emotions that can be involved.

You need to pay a small fee to join in (this service is separate to Eat 4 Health and not funded by West Berkshire Council).

Visit the INSPIRE Website for more details.

Children and Young People - Lifestyle and Weight Management

We've created a pdf icon directory full of information about services that can intervene where there's a concern about a child and youth lifestyle or weight [228kb]. Many of these services are recommended or referred by professionals such as GPs or other health professionals, but some of them can be contacted directly without a referral.
