Our mission

Our mission is to change the way chronic lifestyle related diseases are understood and treated. We want to support the medical establishment to move away from only using drugs to also using evidence based lifestyle interventions to treat and reverse these types of diseases.

Our ambition is to work with the NHS and local government to create environments that make it much easier for us and our children to stay healthy and fit for life.

Our commitment to the NHS

We are committed to supporting the NHS Long Term plan to reverse the trend of rising obesity related diseases to ensure the NHS remains healthy and sustainable for us and our children. We are the future of healthcare. Join our family today.
