1 January, 2013
Submitted: 27 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.
The annual report from the County Durham CPAL project, which includes beginner running groups along with 27 other projects, reported: Against the key measures the assessment in the evaluation is that CPAL is currently well on track, and in several areas significantly ahead, in terms of progress against the core targets. It has already significantly exceeded its overall target for recruitment to
the primary CVD group, with a further six months of recruitment still to go, and the rate for increased physical activity after six months in this group is currently running at 66%.

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.
The County Durham CPAL project states that the rate for increased physical activity after six months in the target group is currently running at 66%.
