Slimming World is the most advanced slimming organisation in the UK. It was founded in 1969 by Margaret Miles-Bramwell, who remains the driving force behind the company to this day. With the experience of a lifetime's weight problem, it is her enthusiasm and unique vision that has made the Company so successful.
In 2009 we celebrated our 40th Anniversary and during those four fabulous decades, over 5 million slimmers have attended our groups and lost a total of 60 million pounds. There are now almost 6,000 groups held weekly on a nationwide basis via a network of around 3,000 Slimming World trained Consultants.
In 1997, Slimming World became the first slimming organisation to qualify for the Investors in People Award, an award that has been retained ever since. Slimming World was awarded 6th Best Company to Work For by the Sunday Times in 2004, achieving Best for Leadership and Top 3 for Giving Something Back and retained its Top 100 position for three consecutive years. In 2007, we received the prestigious three star Best Companies award, based on the elite ???Michelin??? style star rating.
