Get Going

Get Going is a free family healthy lifestyle programme which supports children to work towards a healthy weight. It's about working together as a family to make small lifestyle changes.

Supported by a trained coach, you'll learn more about eating well and being more active. Children will get the opportunity to take part in fun, active games, while parents share ideas and experiences

  • 8 sessions take place in Midlothian Leisure Centres or community venues once a week.
  • It starts with a 1 to 1 consultation with the family and a specially trained healthy lifestyle coach.
  • This is followed by a series of interactive group sessions.
  • Each week a different topic is covered, from introducing a healthier eating plan, to discussions around physical activity and thinking about the amount of time spent watching television or playing on the computer.

To find out when the next courses are available in your area or for more information, call the Get Going number below or email.
