Everyone wants the best for their children, but it can be hard to know what to do as a parent as they grow up. That’s where HENRY comes in. The Healthy Families: Growing Up programme is free to join and helps your family develop a healthier lifestyle that works for you.
The programme is for parents or carers who would like support and ideas to develop a healthier family lifestyle which parents and children can both enjoy. It is free to join.
