Healthier Together

We’ll help your family become healthier together. Our FREE family weight management programme is designed for children and young people in East Riding, as well as their parents or carers.

Great reasons to sign up today

Take control of your family’s health

Children whose parents/care givers encourage them to be active and eat well are more likely to stay a healthy weight, grow up into healthy adults and are less likely to have health problems in later life.

Fun ways to get active

Your expert Integrated health & wellbeing coach will explain lots of different ways to make exercise fun! Set up games, try new activities, and be creative.

Family focused sessions

Our group sessions are a fun learning opportunity to engage the whole family in the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. A great way to learn together.

Tailored app support

You’ll get access to the AmaraHealth™ app, with areas especially designed for families including videos and articles.
