Healthy Weight Needs Assessment 2023 - Adults & Families

Closed 16 Jun 2023

Opened 5 May 2023


Reading Borough Council is working to update their Healthy Weight Needs Assessments.

Overweight and obesity are major risks factors for a number of chronic illnesses, and unfortunately the prevalence of both continue to rise. The Local Authority is therefore reviewing factors of this prevalence, and what effective actions, including weight management services should look like for our population(s).

In order to conduct this review, we are looking to get a better understanding from our communities and residents on what contributes to excess weight and what types of weight management services they would find most beneficial.

We are therefore conducting surveys with the following groups:

  • The Local Residents: open to all
  • Professionals who may work with overweight individuals
  • Education professionals

Why your views matter


Your feedback matters!

It will help inform future commissioning plans for weight management interventions and service provision across Reading.  Your input will help to shape priorities in order to address excess weight and support all residents to live healthy lives.
