What’s the difference between face to face and digital support?
Slimming World provides a 12-week programme which offers weekly face to face group support. As a member of the programme, you choose the target weight that you feel happy with. You are motivated and encouraged in the hour-long weekly meetings to share experiences, recipes and ideas with your fellow slimmers in a warm, supportive environment. Your weight always remains confidential and your weight losses and gradual changes towards a healthy lifestyle are celebrated.
Oviva provides a 12-week programme that puts people in control of their health by offering personalised support from a health coach or dietitian. As a 100% remote service, you can take part in the programme from the comfort of your own home and at a time that suits you either via the Oviva app over secure app messaging, or over phone/video calls. You will have the choice to be matched with your own personal health coach or a coach-led support group to help you throughout their journey.
