Lipoedema UK Members Health & Well-Being Community

Lipoedema UK are so excited to announce the launch of a series of online programmes which are to be made available free to Lipoedema UK Members only. The first session launches on Thursday 6th August at 12:30 – 13:15 hrs UK time and will continue weekly at the same time, for three months. Initially we are allowing members to book on the August and September sessions first. Booking for the remaining sessions to follow at a later date. Please see below a video where Lipoedema UK Chair Sharie and one of our Community Hosts, Sandra, explain a little bit more about the programme. Click on the photo to watch:

The aims of the programme are to provide a combination of various health and well-being topics, presentations and exercises, specifically for the benefit of our members. 

We will be having a regular monthly Nurse Q and A session, but otherwise all information shared is for general interest and personal consideration.

We hope this will be an opportunity for all to come together as a community, without judgement. This will be a space where we can feel safe, understood, freedom to participate if you choose to.

We are confident our programme will result in an increase in our knowledge, it will update us on related issues and enable us all to enhance our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing living our lives with Lipoedema.

Format of Sessions:

The sessions will be delivered on the Zoom platform (you will be sent all the relevant information on how to use zoom if you sign up to a session/sessions). 

You will be able to sign in from 12:15, in readiness for a prompt start at 12:30. Conclusion at 13:15hrs.

Our launch session will include introductions and an explanation of the programme by Sandra, together with a bite size health and well-being activity. There will be a presentation on various health and well being topics on the first Thursday of every month thereafter.  

The third session each month will provide an opportunity for one of our Nurses to answer member questions, regarding the health implications and management of living with Lipoedema. There may also be presentations from other medical professionals on topical Lipoedema health related information.

The remaining sessions each month will be focused on a physical exercise and/ or a health and well-being activity.

As this is an exciting and new initiative, we will be inviting you to complete a questionnaire on completion of the first eight sessions to assess your thoughts about the programme and hopefully some ideas and suggestions as to what you would like us to include in future sessions, to be able to meet your expectations as best we can. This is OUR health and well-being community and your constructive feedback is welcomed.
