 HELP Healthy Eating and Lifestyle programme

HELP is a healthy eating and lifestyle programme for young people with obesity. The effectiveness of the programme is being evaluated in a trial at Great Ormond Street Hospital, in conjunction with the Institute of Child Health, University College London.

The research team are looking for people to help out in two ways:

1. Young persons needed to participate in trial

  • The HELP trial will involve young people aged 13-17 years with obesity.


2. Adult volunteer on the Trial Steering Committee

  • The HELP team are recruiting an enthusiastic volunteer to become part of the Trial Steering Committee.
  • Trial Steering Committees have an important role in ensuring that research trials are being run properly.
  • The position is on a voluntary basis and will involve taking part in meetings twice a year in London, for which travel expenses will be covered.

Please note that although Weight Concern supports the HELP trial, we are not directly involved with this project and therefore cannot answer any related questions. Please see the additional trial information for contact details of the HELP team.
