Live Life Better Derbyshire

Live Life Better Derbyshire offers FREE weight management support, helping you to set and achieve your own weight loss targets and to maintain this weight loss long term.

It is different to other weight loss programmes as the focus is on what's happening in both the body and the mind to help achieve long-term weight loss and wellbeing.

What's on offer

You can benefit from weekly, community-based groups, a self-support option, a specialist weight management programme, a workplace offer and online tools.

According to the scheme, it helps more than 90 per cent of the people lose weight during the first few weeks and half the people lose at least five per cent of their weight by three months.

Who can attend?

To access the free programme you must:

  • Be over 16 years old and live in Derbyshire (excluding Derby City).
  • Have a BMI of 25 or more. BMI is a measure of your weight in relation to your height. Knowing this can help you and us decide whether community or specialist weight management services would suit you best or whether you can access other community services. To check your BMI click here.
