Supported by the Public Health Agency, the £ for lb Toolkit is packed full of all the information, resources and support to support you throughout the Challenge.

Did you know?

  • 60% of adults in Northern Ireland are overweight or obese
  • Approximately 260,000 working days in the UK are lost each year due to obesity related ill health

The £ for lb 12-Week Challenge is designed to tackle obesity and unite workplace teams to learn about nutrition and lose weight. This work-based weight-loss programme aims to encourage employees to adopt a healthier lifestyle by participating in an NHS-based programme. The Challenge is supported by Westfield Health and the Public Health Agency under the umbrella of the “Choose to Live Better” campaign.

From 2017, we have handed the reins over to you to run the Challenge independently within your organisation. Supported by the Public Health Agency, we have compiled both a hard-copy and an online Toolkit which provides you with a step-by-step guide on how to get started as well as all of the resources you will need to run the Challenge from promotional materials, the 12-week NHS guide, weekly email templates and certificate templates. The Toolkit gives you the freedom to run the Challenge at any time and utilise it any way you feel best suits.

If you are new to £ for lb – or if you would benefit from refresher training, we are happy to arrange time for a one-hour session with Champions.

Those who are familiar with the Challenge are ready to get started! Interested? Please email Deirdre Morrissey to sign up and receive your Toolkit.
