Regarding the closure of Mytime Active Community Weight Management Service

Dear Participant,

Thank you for choosing Mytime Active to help support you on your weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey. Over the past 7 years Mytime Active have been commissioned by Sandwell Public Health (Local Authority) to deliver a range of lifestyle services across Sandwell for local residents.

We notified all participants already attending our sessions earlier in the year that unfortunately the Local Authority decided to end our funding on 30th April 2020.  We stated that Mytime Active are very passionate about the work we do and in supporting Sandwell residents, and therefore we planned to continue to deliver our weight management sessions with a small charge of £3 per person, per session. This charge was to help to sustain the deliverer’s salary and the room hire cost which is needed to run the session. To those participants that have joined since March you would only be aware of our service as chargeable one due to this reason.

Unfortunately, I regret to inform you that Mytime Active have made the difficult to decision to close down all our community weight management sessions. Our last sessions were planned to take place week commencing 20th April 2020, however due to the current COVID-19 pandemic we are sad to announce that our sessions will now not restart.

This is a difficult time for our team, however we really want to thank all our participants for their continued support over the years. Our passion has always been in supporting you to reach your healthy lifestyle goals and we sincerely hope our team have done this.

If you have any further questions please contact Louise Pickard on 07854049648 /Louise.Pickard@mytimeactive.co.uk. Should you require any further support, we can refer you to Healthy Sandwell who will be able to signpost you to other classes that might be available. Please contact your key worker or class deliverer who will be able to do this for you.


With best wishes,

The Sandwell Lifestyles Team
