How we can help you › Healthy Families

Healthy Families

ABL’s range of fun and interactive activities support children, young people, and their families to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Our BMI (Body Mass Index) calculator can help you check whether you, or others in your family, are a healthy weight :

Our family-based approach engages the whole family, supporting positive, practical, and realistic changes to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Our friendly advisors are here to support you with encouragement and advice to maintain a positive approach to managing your weight and health behaviours. We understand that every family is different, therefore our approach is flexible to suit individual needs. We have a range of group, 1-1, phone and digital support options providing:

Personal and family wellbeing plans

Realistic goal setting

Physical activity sessions

Healthy eating message – including recipe inspiration and cookery advice for the whole family

My Story is your story

At Your Health Oldham your journey starts with a conversation all about what you need. This initial assessment forms your ‘My Story’, our unique approach allowing us to create a bespoke programme to fit your exact needs – what type of programme, session times, type of support, frequency etc. We’re aware that your path may change throughout, so we adapt with you, to ensure you are always supported and on track to achieve your goals. We want you to be proud to say ‘this is My Story’.
