What’s involved?

Initial one-to-one assessment with your Health & Wellbeing Coach to assess your health and wellbeing, understand your individual needs, motivations and programme goals.

After your initial assessment, you will learn how to prevent Type 2 diabetes, have the opportunity to partake in group discussions and ask your coach questions, all from the comfort of your home. There are two ways to take part in the programme, depending on your personal preference; group based sessions which consists of 6 fortnightly and 7 monthly group sessions or a one to one digital option. You will cover various topics, including nutrition guidance and support, physical activity advice and individual strategies and tools to empower long term progress.

Your end of programme one-to-one review with your Health & Wellbeing Coach will celebrate your successes and achievements and consolidate learning to date. This one-to-one will support you with setting your post-programme goals.

Sessions are held at various times to suit you, including day, evenings and weekends. You’re sure to find one convenient for you. You can choose the pathway that is preferable to you whether that be group based or the digital one to one option.
