Physical Activity Network
Public health is everyone's responsibility and there is a role for all of us, working in partnership, to tackle these challenges.
Too many of us are eating too much, drinking too much and not doing enough physical activity. Creating the right environment can empower and support people to make informed, balanced choices that will help them lead healthier lives.
The Public Health Responsibility Deal aims to tap into the potential for businesses and other influential organisations to make a significant contribution to improving public health by helping us to create this environment.
Since it's launch, ukactive has been a major supporter of the Responsibility Deal, working in partnership with the Department of Health. Its Chairman Fred Turok has served as Chairman of the Physical Activity Network and the ukactive team has played an active role in supporting him, including devoting a team member to support the Secretariat of the Physical Activity Network.
The Responsibility Deal embodies the Government's ambition for a more collaborative approach to tackling the challenges caused by our lifestyle choices. The Responsibility Deal was recently awarded a prestigious Civil Service Award for its innovative collaborative work.
