Programmes for Families

FAQs

To be eligible for a free place, your family needs to:

  • Have at least one child (age 5-15) who is above the recommended weight for their age and height. You can check in just a few seconds using the NHS BMI calculator.
  • AND live in one of our council funded areas (or be registered with a GP or go to school there):
    • Birmingham
    • Brent
    • Brighton & Hove
    • Gloucester City & Forest of Dean
    • Hertfordshire
    • Hounslow
    • Thurrock
    • Waltham Forest

We encourage the whole family to attend – any siblings are welcome too! (Even if they’re not eligible themselves)

Your family will have a better chance of making long-lasting healthy changes if you’re all in it together.

Absolutely not – our focus is not on weight loss. We are much more concerned with helping your family learn tips and tricks to enjoy a healthier lifestyle!

They’re still growing, so weight loss should never be the primary aim for a children’s weight management programme. We encourage families to focus more on building healthy habits instead, so the kids grow into their weight and learn to make healthy choices for their future.

Our top priority is your child’s physical and mental health. We don’t focus on weight, we NEVER use the ‘f’ word, and we promote positive body image in all the children we work with.

We don’t put children on damaging diets or force them to exercise. Instead we guide them towards finding healthy foods they like, educate them on how to eat a balanced diet (which includes yummy treats in the right amounts!), and encourage them to find joy in movement.

It can be really difficult to raise the issue of being overweight with your child. However, by addressing it now, you will help them to adopt healthy skills for life and grow into healthy, happy adults!

There’s no catch! No hidden fees, no paid add-ons. It really is 100% free.

How’s that possible? We’re funded by local councils and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (which used to be called Public Health England) to offer support to eligible families free of charge.

Yep!

It’s all easy and fun for the kids, and we change it up depending on age group and ability.

If you choose BeeZee Families Live (the online option), you could end up playing games like musical statues, or being guided through a fun family-friendly home workout by a pro, or all sorts of other things.

If you choose BeeZee Families (the in-person programme), you’ll play group games like dodgeball and try exciting activities like archery.

Our next set of programmes begin in January. There are still spaces left, but we expect to fill them all, so don’t wait too long!
