Jubilee Hall Trust (JHT) and MEND have won a contract to deliver eight child obesity programmes for NHS Camden starting this autumn. In October, two of the programmes will be for ages 5-7 and two for ages 7-13, and then this will be repeated in January 2013. This will enable almost 100 families to benefit. The Trust will be aiming to recruit families from Holborn & Covent Garden, Bloomsbury, King’s Cross, Regent’s Park, St. Pancras and Somers Town and has begun to mobilise resources and recruit sessional staff to manage the programmes.
JHT will also be running two autumn MEND programmes in Southwark (commissioned by NHS Southwark) and these will be at Rye Oak primary school and City of London Academy.
