People who know first hand, campaigning to make Hackney an easier place to be a healthy weight.

We are campaigning to change Hackney so that we can help reverse growing obesity in the borough. Right now:

  • 41.3% of adults are overweight or obese
  • 49.6% of children

The big difference with our ‘Does Hackney make you fat?’ is that it is led and run by people who know the challenges of trying to reach a health weight first hand.

We believe our expertise has been over looked. Indeed our voice has been squashed by the stigma and social pressure that goes hand in hand with being overweight.

Join our campaign as a supporter or an activist. We want everyone who lives or works in the borough to support us; to be an activist you also need to be overweight.
