Southwark Weight Loss Programme for Men Over 45

We are working with Men's Health Engineers and Southwark Council to deliver a 12-week weight loss programme just for men. It is FREE for residents over 45 who live in or are registered with a GP in Southwark. There will be sessions available in local community venues across Southwark and online.

You can sign up if:

- You identify as male
- You’re 45 or older​
- You live or are registered with a GP in Southwark
- You’re overweight, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25+, or 23.5+ for people of ethnic minorities or those with co-morbidities

If that's you, sign up here:

Once you've signed up, you'll be given a referral code to sign up to BetterPoints with, or add to your existing BetterPoints account. By completing the 12-week programme, you can earn over £20 to spend on things like hot drinks, gym passes or supermarket vouchers.

Even modest weight loss can lead to huge health benefits. It can lead to a reduction in blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and your risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers and arthritis. Often men talk about shifting some pounds but the majority of weight loss support is aimed at women. Blokes face their own unique challenges when managing their health and fitness. Over 12 group sessions you will be supported to engineer everyday behaviours, equipping you with the tools to take charge of your health, without giving up the things you love!
