Working with Ace Weight Management we are pleased to be offering community drop ins for people wanting to lose weight.
Ace weight management offers a 12 week programme to anyone who is looking to make long term changes to their health by learning about how to eat well and make changes to their activity levels.
The programme has been proven to be successful with participants reporting that in addition to weight loss they have improved confidence and are more knowledgeable about things like food labels, serving size and what constitutes a balanced diet.
Sarah Laskar Director of Maldon and District CVS says “Ace recognises that making the decision to work on weight management can be difficult, by working with us as a community partner we can offer social support in a non-clinical and informal setting which we hope will be welcoming to anyone who struggles to engage with more traditional services”
Volunteer to support the drop ins
The charity is looking for volunteers who can help to support people through the 12 week programme by taking weigh ins, providing booklets and leaflets and keeping records. The ideal volunteer will be someone who is non judgmental and able to provide a friendly ear to programme participants. They are not expected to give advice just encouragement and support.
