Reducing your risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes accounts for around 10% of the annual NHS budget and one in three people nationally are now at high risk of developing diabetes. One key risk factor is physical inactivity, yet nearly half of Bexley’s adult population are inactive.

Reducing your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes accounts for around 10% of the annual NHS budget and one in three people nationally are now at high risk of developing diabetes. One key risk factor is physical inactivity, yet nearly half of Bexley’s adult population are inactive.

By making small changes to your lifestyle, you can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Our project will offer eligible residents one FREE activity a week. In addition we will offer support to help you take small steps and make a big difference to your health.

Activities include healthy walks, selected leisure centre and community classes, swimming and gym sessions.

Beat has received funding from Sport England to run this project and will need to gather information from participants to evidence whether the project works.
