MORELIFE IN GREATER MANCHESTER

OUR SERVICES IN THE GREATER MANCHESTER AREA

 

We run FREE adult weight management services for eligible individuals across the City of Manchester, Salford, Bury, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop.

At MoreLife, we’re passionate about supporting individuals and communities to lead healthier lives. We’ve been successfully delivering weight management programmes for over 20 years. Our programmes are:

FLEXIBLE – our programmes are tailored to meet your needs and the needs of the group

ACCESSIBLE – face-to-face groups are held at a variety of local venues, with telephone, text Skype and online support between groups

SOCIABLE – all our programmes are delivered in a supportive, group setting

PSYCHOLOGICALLY INFORMED – we don’t tell you what to do, rather we’ll help you to understand how thoughts, emotions and feelings influence your decisions

EVIDENCE-BASED – our strong links to Leeds Beckett University mean all our programmes are based on the latest, cutting-edge research

OUR 12-WEEK PROGRAMME

MoreLife group programmes run for 12 weeks, with monthly maintenance sessions afterwards to help you stay on track. Each session lasts 1.5 hours and focuses on a new topic each week, such as:

  • Portion control
  • Understanding food labelling
  • Changing habits
  • Stress management
  • The role of sleep
  • Emotional and social eating

Our experienced team is made up of nutritionists, psychologists and sport and exercise specialists, and you’ll have a dedicated weight management practitioner for your whole journey with us.
