In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Get unbeatable support

To change the habits that have formed over years — sometimes decades — we know you need in-depth support and encouragement.

At Slimming World, we’re passionate about helping every member achieve their dreams. We promise you’ll be treated with warmth, respect and understanding, and you’ll have access to a support system like no other.

At the heart of our groups is a powerfully motivating session we call IMAGE Therapy. IMAGE stands for Individual Motivation And Group Experience. It’s a chance to benefit from the experiences of your fellow members — to inspire and be inspired, to change deep-rooted grooves, share healthy swaps and make plans for the week ahead.

Based on our unique group support, if you’re an online member you’ll enjoy a wealth of tools to raise awareness of where things could go wrong and develop strategies for lifelong success. And in our online Community you’ll share your experiences and get support from fellow slimmers.

A warm, friendly Slimming World group is the very best place to lose weight. You’ll get all the support you need to reach your dream weight and stay there for life.

From just £4.95 a week.

Your first time at a Slimming World group...

As soon as you walk through the doors, you’ll get a warm welcome from your Consultant and fellow members. Before you go ahead and join, your Consultant will explain everything you need to know about our delicious Food Optimising plan.

You’ll then be invited to enjoy our support session where our members share ideas, recipes and their inspirational stories – this is where the magic happens!

Along with other new members, you’ll enrol and weigh-in privately – your weight always remains confidential.

The session will last around 1½ hours – there's no obligation to join, but you’ll be so glad you did!
