Families

We help your family get healthy!

Families clubs are delivered by our friendly Better Living Trainers; they are held throughout the year at various locations across Calderdale.

The 2 hour sessions are broken up into games and fun activities as well as healthy eating and lifestyle advice for both children and adults, always within a fun and supportive learning environment.

The healthy lifestyle sessions are interactive and topic matters can include:

  • Why is sleep important?
  • How should I start my day?
  • What is a balanced diet?
  • Why do we need to eat fruit and vegetables?
  • How much sugar is in my drink?
  • What makes us different?

The physical activity sessions can include:

  • Fitness Bingo
  • Games
  • Dance
  • Yoga
  • Parachute
  • Chair based exercise

Who can attend?

Our families clubs are free for people with referrals from GP surgeries, other health and family professionals and self-referrals.

These free courses are available to families who would like some guidance and support on how their whole family can learn to lead a healthier lifestyle.
