Weight Management Centre

Weight Management Centre was formed in 2001 in response to the epidemic of overweight and obesity in the UK. The organisation is committed to healthy long-term weight loss and optimum wellness through positive lifestyle changes in adults and children. Our weight loss programmes and training qualifications provide practical evidence-based solutions resulting from years of meticulous research and development, and provide outstanding weight loss results.  The services that we provide range from small scale support for individuals running a weight management programme, to the direct delivery and management of full weight management interventions for Primary Care Trusts. 

Our mission is to provide and disseminate accurate and meaningful information alongside high quality cutting edge services relating to all aspects of overweight and obesity and to support this with practical tools and materials for effective delivery of weight management programmes.  We are also an educational organisation that has recently researched, written and delivered the first level 4 obesity management qualification in the UK; as such our expertise in obesity as a provider is second to none.

The training that we provide is designed for health professionals, community wellness practitioners and all those interested in working with adults or children delivering obesity services. Our training is also highly relevant for those involved in the development of obesity intervention or prevention strategies; last year we trained over 1000 health professionals.
