Healthy Weight and Obesity Strategy

The Healthy Weight and Obesity Strategy aims to address a number of priorities outlined in South Gloucestershire’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy. Tackling obesity and overweight is an important as we know that individuals who are above the healthy weight range are at risk of developing a number of adverse health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and cancer.

This strategy has been produced by South Gloucestershire’s Healthy Weight Strategy Group and developed by South Gloucestershire Council in partnership with a range of statutory and voluntary organisations, and sets out our plan to reduce the prevalence across the district. The strategy will translate national policies into local action, whilst also meeting the needs of local people based on evidence of what works. It will outline how organisations will need to work together to ensure obesity is integrated into high level strategic plans.
