Obesity - working with local communities - new NICE public health guidance

Previous | NextHome > News > Obesity - working with local communities - new NICE public health guidance

This guidance aims to support effective, sustainable and community-wide action to prevent obesity. It sets out how local communities, with support from local organisations and networks, can achieve this.

For the purpose of this guidance, ‘local community’ refers to a group of people from the same geographic location that is not necessarily related to any official, administrative boundary.

This guidance focuses on the prevention of overweight and obesity. The recommendations may also help people who are already overweight or obese to lose weight, or to prevent them from gaining further weight. It does not cover clinical management for people who are already overweight or obese.

This guidance is for local policy makers, commissioners, managers, practitioners and other professionals working in local authorities, the NHS and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors.
