Now open for referrals, the service offers a free 12-week programme which is designed to support and empower participants to make their own health choices and achieve their wellbeing goals using a compassionate and person-centred approach.
The hour-long weekly sessions will be delivered by Registered Nutritionists with input from Cognitive Behavioural Therapists.
Participants will also receive support in between sessions from a dedicated app and be supported to make links with other services within the local community.
Topics covered in the programme include: nutrition, increasing daily movement, mind-set, wellbeing and much more. Groups will be running in a range of community venues across Doncaster, with a virtual group also on offer.
