The child weight management programme and training providers framework has been developed to support local commissioning of weight management services for children and young people.
Nine pre-qualified training provider organisations offer training in the delivery of specific approaches to weight management in at risk, overweight and obese children and young people.
The documents provide further information on how to use the framework, information on each of the providers, details of how PCTs and partner organisations can ‘call off’ services from these providers and a set of template documents to support commissioners.
The framework was developed in 2008 under the previous Government and as such, the framework documentation refers to the previous Government’s strategy Healthy weight, healthy lives. Although this strategy is no longer current, the framework itself is still valid and available for use until April 2012.
