Healthy Weight Healthy Lives Strategy

The City of York Council Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives Strategy aims to support individuals in York to lose excess weight and maintain a healthy weight. Achieving a healthy weight increases life expectancy and also has financial benefits by utilising limited resources effectively.

The causes of obesity are complex and maintaining a healthy weight is affected by a range of factors including physical, environmental, social and emotional. This strategy has been developed using locally available evidence on the extent of obesity in York, national guidance and input from a City of York Council Healthy Weight Steering Group.

We welcome your views so that we can consider the needs and opinions of residents to ensure that the recommendations and support services outlined in the strategy are appropriate.

Please read the strategy and take our Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives Survey to give us your thoughts.
