Weight Matters is now a part of the Healthy Weight Programme based at The Health Promotion Service. We work with people of all ages throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to promote healthy weight.
We offer a wide range of programmes aimed at increasing awareness of why we should be a healthy weight and provide practical opportunities to get people motivated to make positive lifestyle changes.

Do you suffer with type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or other weight related issues? This programme is most suitable for people who are either overweight or obese. It is a 12 week programme looking at nutrition, physical activity and behaviour change, aimed at providing skills, knowledge and confidence to help you manage your weight more effectively.

Weight management on referral
GPs can refer their patients to Weight Watchers or Slimming World for 12 weeks of weight management support. Patients interested in being referred should enquire about the scheme at their own GP practices. Medical professionals can find out more in the Professional Zone
LEAF early years programme
The LEAF programme focuses on obesity in the 0-6 year old age group. We explore topics to help manage children’s weight; these include balanced nutrition, healthy foods, food labelling, internal and external triggers, behaviour change, routine and activity. After the programme finishes families are supported closer to home by health visitors or school nurses. Read more about LEAF
