Abstract Introduction
South Asians in the UK are at increased risk of type 2 diabetes and face overlooked barriers to attending prevention programmes. A unique collaboration called Leicester Changing Diabetes harnesses academic and clinical (NHS) expertise, the brand and reach of professional sports clubs and Public Health insight to tackle this issue.
Methods
“Healthy Goals” has been developed by Leicester Diabetes Centre (LDC) and Leicester City Football Club (LCFC) Community Trust under the auspices of Leicester City Council's Alliance for Physical Activity. This 12 week group-based programme combines lifestyle behaviour change education (delivered by LDC facilitators) with physical activity (delivered by LCFC coaches) utilising the city's indoor (sports halls) and green (outdoor gyms) local authority spaces. The programme is interactive, culturally tailored and is built on self-management education typically delivered in clinical settings. Observations, service evaluation, process (feedback and focus group) and implementation data are being collected across three cohorts (winter 2018 to summer 2019).
Results
Characteristics (means) of the 13 adults in cohort one: age: 38-75 years; waist circumference (88.1 cm), BMI (26.7 kg/m2) and blood pressure (141/88 mm Hg). Attendance: 61-85%. Non-attendance reasons: holidays, cultural celebrations and transport. Positive feedback on programme content, delivery and community location while education sessions could be longer for more discussion while simplifying activities.
Conclusion
Healthy Goals is a feasible way to support behaviour change in South Asians while using local amenities. The collaborative working is a novel way to deliver programmes in overlooked communities. External funding details Leicester Changing Diabetes is funded by Novo Nordisk
