all about you

80% of people with learning disabilities are overweight so it’s probably a lot more common than you think.

You may be concerned about someone you care for and want to help them get fit and healthy.

Our caring specialist Livewell advisor works with carers and the individual to develop a flexible plan that suits everyone’s needs.  It will include healthy eating advice and physical activity sessions that cater for all physical and emotional difficulties connected to learning disabilities.

What’s more, we make everything fun and simple so that it’s as easy as possible to make lifestyle changes. 

Livewell is funded to help as many individuals as possible in Derby to live a healthier lifestyle.  Due to high demand for weight management programmes, Livewell cannot accept applications from people who have already completed a 12-month Livewell or b-You weight management plan.
