P2. Physical Activity Guidelines
5 April, 2011
Submitted: 23 May, 2014
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.
We have used Civil Service Physical Activity leaflets produce by DH to promote the CMO Guidelines for adults. We have also distributed change4life leaflets at our health & wellbeing market place events, delivered power point presentation at staff meeting and workshops on health and wellbeing to profile CMO's guidelines. A leaflet with the guidelines can be found on our health & wellbeing noticeboards in DH buildings. We have used fact-sheets from CMO Guidelines (poster for CMO Guidelines for all age groups) at various meetings, including meetings with external stakeholders. We are now looking to develop messaging around combating sedentary behaviour and piloting standing desks.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
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:
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.
