Background

Healthier You is a nine-month behaviour change programme that helps supports people at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Participants receive support to change their lifestyle in a friendly and supportive group environment.

Designed by experts, our multi-component intervention is underpinned by a decade of research into community-based diabetes prevention.

2,000+ people

are referred to us every month

Participant journey

On referral, we conduct an individual assessment, including a BMI check and, where appropriate, very brief advice on smoking cessation.

Participants then attend thirteen 90 minute group sessions over 40 weeks. They receive extensive supporting resources, including handouts, trackers and a pedometer.

For those who are not able to attend our group sessions, they can access the service through a digital app provided by our partner Second Nature.
