Change4Life Sunderland

We all want the best for our children, but 'modern life' can mean we don't move around or eat as well as we should. With so many opportunities to watch TV or play computer games and the ever-growing fast food industry, a healthy lifestyle can sometimes seem difficult. That said, even small lifestyle changes can help improve the way you feel about yourself and offer your family a better quality of life.

The Change 4 Life Sunderland programme provides healthy lifestyle sessions aimed at encouraging and supporting families to eat well, move more and live longer.  

Who is the programme for?       

  • Young people aged 0-18 years and their families
  • Young people and families who want to make changes to improve their lifestyles
