If programmes like this one prove to be helpful for people it opens up not only the opportunity for individuals to benefit, but also the opportunity for churches to serve their communities in a way which will help alleviate the burden of weight related diseases on national health service (NHS) resources.
It is for these reasons that this programme is part of research being conducted at Coventry University.
We invite everyone who takes part in Taste & See to contribute to our research by completing a questionnaire before and after taking part in the programme.
We would like to find out how good the Taste & See programme is for helping people develop a healthier relationship with food; feel better about themselves and about their lives. The purpose is to evaluate how helpful this church-based intuitive eating programme, which incorporates principles of the Christian faith, is to the local community
Questionnaires for participants
Each questionnaire takes about 10-15 minutes to complete and asks questions about your background, your health and eating habits, your feelings and your spirituality.
Questionnaires for facilitators
So that we can improve the ease of running this programme in the future we also ask facilitators to complete a questionnaire after running the programme to get an idea of how things have worked.
Answers to all questionnaires will be treated confidentially and the information you provide will be kept anonymous. The project has been reviewed and approved through the formal Research Ethics procedure at Coventry University. More details and access to these questionnaires are available when you join a Taste & See programme.
