Families for Life

Families for Life is Islington and Camden's universal healthy lifestyle service that has been designed to help families with children aged 2 to 11 to make healthy lifestyle choices to 'feel good and live well'. Parent and children attend a 4 - 6 session programme together.

Programmes are run in a variety of settings, including schools, early years settings, community settings and adventure playgrounds.
