P2. Physical Activity Guidelines
31 July, 2013
Submitted: 21 April, 2015
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.
HM Treasury have advertised the benefits of physical activity which can help to lessen stress and improve overall wellbeing and fitness.
We have access to much information about physical activity via our Occupational Health provider's internet pages. We publicised the onsite gym, Treasury Sports and Social Club (TSSC) and sports activities available.
We regularly encourage employees to participate in the weekly lunchtime wellbeing walks.
HM Treasury advertised the annual Walking Challenge and Walk to Work week last year and again in April 2015, expressing how walking can benefit both physical and mental health.
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.
