With obesity at an all-time high, there has never been a greater urgency to address the detrimental effect poor food choices and lack of exercise have within our prison system.

In one of his reports, ex-chief Inspector of Prisons, Nick Hardwick, commented: “Some men emerge only to take an occasional shower, to make a quick phone call or to queue to collect a tray of carb-rich food at mealtimes”.

Recognising this problem, RECOOP developed and has successfully delivered, a 6-week healthy weight and exercise programme (HELP – Healthy Eating & Living in Prison) appropriate for people of any age and ability whilst in a custodial setting.

Group-based sessions can be delivered weekly by prison or gym staff using the Weight Management & Exercise programme.

HELP is an affordable solution.  For a one-off cost of £1,500 you will receive all the resources you need to deliver the programme on a weekly basis.  The package includes:

  • A 2-hour training session with one of our Consultants enabling self-delivery
  • A comprehensive Facilitator Folder containing week-by-week session plans and supporting material
  • Scales that also measure BMI
  • 10 Pedometers for use by participants
  • Plastic Foods (for nutritional sessions)

Further information can be found in the leaflet which can be downloaded from this page, or by contacting:info@recoop.org.uk
