Enriching the Community
Good health is an essential part of a young person’s quality of life experience. It is our aspiration to see
improvements in the life expectancy and reducing inequalities, it is with this intention that we are looking
to offer the Reward programme, in which the delivery of quality Physical Education will help improve a childs life.
We feel our project will have great benefit to the local community as we are educating the children at a young age, which will ensure long term health benefits for the society. We are aiming for improved diets which will be linked to increasing in exercise levels and reduction in weight as well as a better understanding of the link between poor diets and obesity, exercise and good health.
The key priorities for the Park Ward area are being targeted with this project, including; improving the health and well being of the local people and community cohesion by bringing people together through various health and sporting initiatives.
