City LivingWise has been commissioned by the City of London Corporation to provide effective, integrated lifestyle support.

We provide City residents and low-paid/high-risk workers with a single point of access to support that helps them lose weight, be more active or have an NHS Health Check.

Participants can access three LivingWise service components:

  • WEIGHT MANAGEMENT SUPPORT

    City LivingWise participants benefit from a behavioural weight management intervention developed by experts in the fields of psychology, nutrition and physiology and mapped to National Institute Guidelines for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. We help people lose weight in a safe and sustainable way.

    As well as our own service participants also have access to Weight Watchers meetings.
