Fit Families Weight Management Service is a confidential and free service delivered by Shropshire School Nurses in partnership with Shropshire Council.

It includes a 6 month programme of individualised support for 5 – 15 year olds and their families throughout Shropshire (excluding Telford & Wrekin) to help them achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Fit Families accepts referrals from health professionals, partner agencies, parents, young people and schools. The programme provides support and encouragement to make small, sustainable lifestyle changes with a focus on improving diet, increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour.
