Well London

Well London

Working with public health professionals, borough officers and NHS teams, LSx supported 20 neighbourhoods to develop their own behaviour change approaches to support healthier eating, physical activity and mental well-being. Overall LSx contributed to reaching out to nearly 2.5m people through our Wellnet, Eatwell and Well London Delivery Team programmes.  We had the specific responsibility of coordinating over 200 volunteers in 10 health champion teams and led on the healthy eating strand of the programme. 80% said taking part in Well London enabled them to make changes in their life; 70% of Cook & Eat participants reported eating fruit and vegetables more regularly.

 

“It’s brilliant, I am really enjoying myself. It’s the first time I’ve had a job or been accepted for one in five years and I’m really making the most of the opportunity.”

A really inspiring and positive event. Gave me some real ideas which I will definitely be taking back and you can quote me!”

"LSx is at the forefront of creative ways to influence lifestyles.  They really dig down into what works and why with communities across London and offer the up to date know-how on how to make change happen on the ground."
