In the UK today, there are around 4 million people who have Type 2 diabetes and around 7 million living with heart and circulatory disease. These can be serious life-threatening conditions.

This is why Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Tesco came together to form the National Charity Partnership (NCP) in order to inspire millions of people to eat better, get active and reduce their risk of developing these two conditions, both of which are largely preventable.

The NCP was established as a three-year collaboration, to raise vital funds for the two charities as well as delivering programmes across the UK that supported people to live healthier lifestyles. After extensive research, the partnership chose to target their prevention activities towards mums aged 25-40 years who lived in areas of high deprivation, with a secondary audience of children and other family members.

The report below focuses on Make, Move and Munch Clubs (MMMCs) that were delivered as part of the prevention strategy.
