P2. Physical Activity Guidelines
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 16 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.
Many Sporta Trust run programmes, include special membership offers for employees, which encourage recognition and implementation of the Guidelines. These operated throughout the year.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
Promotion of physical activity is a constant feature of all sporta members' activities and trusts run programmes which encourage recognition and implementation of the Guidelines, throughout the year.
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.
Sporta has agreed a programme part-funded by Sport England to implement projects in trusts to get inactive people aged 14 plus and in priority groups doing at least 1x30 minutes physical activity and sport per week. The programme will begin in Summer 2013 and has a Programme Board including a range of experts. A second outcome from the programme will be a resource to demonstrate what works and what doesn't to get inactive people more active.
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+)
Sporta trusts serve all ages of people and leisure centres provide a good range of facilities for all adults.
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.
