Frequently Asked Questions

QDo I have to attend every week?

Yes! A weekly commitment is required during the initial 16 weeks of the Classic Programme and during the 10 week Healthy Families Programme. This is to support you and your child to make changes. Please make sure you are willing and ready to commit these timescales before you join us.

QWill my child be on a diet?

Watch it is NOT a diet club. Our ethos is that 'diets don't work'. We will work with you to support family changes so that your child does not feel they have to make these changes on their own.


“Focusing on all that is positive has helped me believe that I could make changes and maintain them afterwards”

“It has been very good for the whole family.  We have changed our lifestyle to a healthier one.  I have enjoyed participating and coming.”

“I am glad came because I have made friends. That was one of the things that I was nervous about when I first joined Watch It, but now I am growing in confidence”.

“Every week I look forward to going to the group.  It is easy to look after my girls with the information I receive even though I cannot read or write. It is somewhere to come and talk and share”. (via interpreter for non-English speaking parent)
