The Responsibility Deal and Change4Life – the perfect match

As part of their pledge activity or to highlight this activity partners may want to undertake some communications with their customers, the wider community or their employees. The Change4Life movement offers the perfect opportunity to do this.

Change4Life is a trusted health brand that is popular and understood by those groups it engages with and seeks to influence. It is ideally placed to act as the umbrella brand for Responsibility Deal partners to communicate with its customers and wider.

If a Responsibility Deal partner wishes to use the Change4Life brand and its messages, they can become a Change4Life partner and gain approval for their activity. Change4Life has separate and specific terms of engagement that partners sign up to.

Reporting progress

Partners will report annually on their progress in delivering their pledges and all of this information will be published on this website. Further information on how progress is reported.

Individual pledges

Partners can submit suggestions for individual pledges that are either specific to their organisation or to a sub-group within a sector.

Making an individual pledge gives an organisation the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in their sector by going further than current collective action, or to make a commitment in an area where collective action is not appropriate.

If you would like to discuss ideas for individual pledges please email: responsibilitydeal@dh.gsi.gov.uk
