This report by Public Health England explores the provision of tier 2 and tier 3 weight management (WM) services for children, young people and adults that are locally commissioned through local authorities and clinical commissioning groups. 
The aim of the mapping exercise was to explore the provision of WM services for children and young people (CYP) and adults across England, and to understand how these services are delivered. PHE Centres engaged local authorities and CCGs in the process, and a mixed methods approach was taken which involved face-to-face mapping workshops and an e-survey.  It provides insights into how these services are delivered across England including: referral routes and entry criteria; 
service details; costs; exit routes; and barriers to commissioning services.
