P2. Physical Activity Guidelines
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 18 June, 2013
Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
Physical activity and exercise is a major part of the work we do at Lets Get Healthy. We work mainly with adults (19-64), promoting physical activity and providing guideline recommendations for both employees and their children through our onsite training. Our online tools and resources also provide information on these guidelines for employees and their families.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
The revised Chief Medicial Officers (CMO) guidelines provide physical activity recommendations for four distinct age groups. From the following list, please indicate the age groups you have focused on in disseminating the guidelines (if unknown, please explain why):
Early years (under 5s), Children & young people (5-18), Adults (19-64), Older adults (65+)
Please estimate the number of people reached through your activities on this pledge and explain how you arrived at this estimate:
As physical activity and exercise is a major part of the work we do at Lets Get Healthy and our programmes are rolled out to all employees, it is estimated that Lets Get Healthy has reached over 40 organisations and their employees in the past year.
We would be interested to know if your pledge activity over the last year has delivered a measurable increase in participation in physical activity. If so, please describe and provide an estimate of the level of increase and how you measured this. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
