This forms part of our oranisational commitment to encourage recovering addicts to engage with the whole physical activity sector, indoor, outdoor and active travel in delivering on this aspiration.We will contribute to the communication and promotion of the Chief Medical Officer's revised physical activity guidelines to our staff, volunteers and service users. This will form part of our better at health at work campaign.HNE believes that third-sector organisations, business and the government must work together to help ensure greater reach and impact of the guidelines, focusing upon promoting the health benefits of regular physical activity and the health risks of sedentary behaviour.
