2. Empowering people to make long term sustainable lifestyle changes. Our Joy of Moving programme reaches more than 70,000 children each year with health education lessons in schools. Children learn about the importance of a balanced diet and active lifestyle in a fun and engaging way.
3. Supporting people living with, or at risk of, long term conditions. Our FIT FANS programme reaches men and women whose weight is posing a risk to their health. The 12 week programme helps them to lose weight, improve their diet, become more active and reduce their blood pressure.
4. Tackling local health inequalities by creating an appropriate social prescribing offer. Our Extra Time Hubs are helping bring people together in their retirement years, who may be lonely or isolated, to make connections and become more active.
We work across all age groups and sections of the community. We aim to help people to start well, live well and age well.
We know that some people living in the communities surrounding EFL clubs are more likely to have poor health, to be living with multiple conditions and to die prematurely from preventable causes. We work with partners including NHS England, local authorities and several leading health charities to address the sometimes stark health inequalities.
Across our network CCOs are helping people to recover from cancer, support people living with a diagnosis of dementia, and help people to become free of substance misuse.
Our network is an increasingly significant factor in improving public health.
