The National Children’s Bureau has recently released a new report to help agencies understand how they can work together to reduce childhood obesity and improve health outcomes. By exploring promising local work in the context of national policy, the document supports schools, early years’ settings, local authorities, voluntary organisations and others to plan and deliver effective joined-up initiatives to tackle obesity.
The document brings together information from a range of sources andshowcases examples of local programmes and interventions that support children in early years settings or primary education to be healthy and physically active, particularly those benefiting children who experience health disadvantages and those living in areas of deprivation.
Four CSPs have contributed to the report and had case studies of their work included
- KentSPort- Change4Life Champions Conference
- Active Cumbria - 100 Mile Challenge
- Active Cheshire - West Cheshire Smile for a Mile
- Northamptonshire Sport- Healthier Child Project
