Healthy way logo

This page includes information to help you implement the HealthyWEY e-learning within your local area, with a view to promoting meaningful and sustainable change.

It is recommended you work through both the Implementation Guidance, and the Implementation Planning Tool before implementing HealthyWEY amongst your teams.

There is also an interview with two previous Child Weight Champions, in which they share their experiences and offer tips for others looking to integrate HealthyWEY into their existing services.
