It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Families getting together, Christmas lights and festive decorations as far as the eye can see.
We are constantly looking for ways to help improve people’s lives through healthy eating, exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle. To wrap up the year we would like to share some key figures from our service and how they have made an impact on those taking part. And if you aren’t already signed up for our service, maybe these figures will inspire you to take part in the New Year.
Manage your weight
Our weight management course is designed by experts and proven to help you lose weight in a safe and sustainable way. We have had more than 160 people complete our weight management course, and many seeing a reduction in their BMI as a result of our support.
“I am starting to understand the relationship between food and diet, and how to maintain a healthier lifestyle. My coach is very inspirational and I am happy I joined.” – Sylvia

Our smoke free service is led by expert advisers who provide tips and tools to help you quit smoking. Stoptober was a big hit this year. Overall, the programme helped more than 130 people reach their 4-week quit mark, and over 60 reached their 12-week quit mark.
“I have been smoking for 50 years. The first time I tried to quit 2 years ago was unsuccessful. Since using One You Haringey I feel more determined and I motivated to quit.” – Majid
“The Smoke Free sessions were very helpful. To be with other people in the same situation, on the same journey was very encouraging.” – John
