Heartly Lives is a partnership approach to addressing maternal and childhood obesity.

Heart disease unfairly affects certain populations within the UK, particularly those living in areas of high socio-economic deprivation and certain geographical regions. For three years the Hearty Lives Carrickfergus Project has been delivered in Carrickfergus, Whitehead and Greenisland communities, supporting the development of new and effective ways of working to highlight the impact of obesity on women and their families.
