What is Change4Life
Run by the Department of Health, Change4Life is a public health programme in England. When launched in 2009, it was the country's first national social marketing campaign to tackle the causes of obesity.
Change4Life aims to help families, adults and children make small, sustainable yet significant improvements to their diet, activity levels and alcohol consumption. It uses the slogan "eat well, move more, live longer".
Change4Life Sports Clubs
Change4Life Sports Clubs aim to engage with less active children and encourage them to take part in regular physical activity.
Change4Life also offers schools teaching resources and ideas to encourage healthy eating and regular physical activity. To find out more visit the “School Zone”.
How our Team supports the Change4Life programme
Through Department for Health funding, our School Games Organisers the School Games Programme are involved in setting up and sustaining clubs in their local primary schools. The aim of the programme is to embed Change4Life clubs at the heart of the school creating an environment that encourages physical activity and builds personal and social skills. We can provide schools with advice and support about Change4Life Clubs, how these can be used as Physical Activity-based Interventions for targeted groups of children (i.e, less active, engaging girls, non-engagers, etc). Through effective development and facilitation, Change4Life Clubs can contribute to achieving Key Indicator 2 of the PE and Sport Premium where the profile of PE and Sport also be used to support whole school improvement.
In addition to our involvement in the Change4Life Sports Clubs, the Newcastle PE and School Sport Service are partners in the East and West Newcastle Change4Life Partnerships. These partnerships bring together like-minded organisations to offer opportunities for children, schools, families and adults eat healthy and be more physically active.
