Introduction to the “Get Going” programme

We would like to let you know of the availability of a new healthy living programme provided by NHS Lothian and East Lothian Council called Get Going.

Get Going is a free family healthy lifestyle programme which supports children to work towards a healthy weight. It’s about working together as a family to make small lifestyle changes. Supported by a trained coach, you’ll learn more about eating well and being more active. Children will get the opportunity to take part in fun, active games, while parents share ideas and experiences

Get Going consists of eight sessions, taking place in enjoyleisure sports centres or community venues once a week. It starts with a one-to-one consultation with the family and a specially trained healthy lifestyle coach. This is followed by a series of interactive group sessions.

Each week a different topic is covered, from introducing a healthier eating plan, to discussions around physical activity and thinking about the amount of time spent watching television or playing on the computer.
