This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Senior Programme Officer for Public Health, Adults and Communities, Tim Howells, for the attention of the Early Years Providers and Primary Schools.
Active Movement and our new Integrated Wellbeing Service, are excited to launch a new element of the programme designed to empower children to look after their, and their families, health whilst at home.
As an extension to our Health At Home resources and the current Ambassador programme delivered in Slough schools, we are offering the opportunity for Slough children to join this new programme. There are 2 bespoke element to the programme:
- For Early Years - This element follows the “Max” programme which is delivered in Children Centres and other Early Year settings. This involves Max the dog, and how the child can emulate the positive behaviours of Max
- For Primary Schools – This element follows the “Ambassador” programme which is delivered across Slough primary schools. This involves empowering the child to take ownership of supporting their family to be more active and healthy whilst at home. It also includes a bespoke “5 ways to wellbeing” resource which has been designed by the East Berkshire CCG.
With both elements they will receive a letter, badge and pledge of what to do. The parents/carers will also have the opportunity to receive ongoing support from Active Movement to reduce sedentary behaviour whilst they are at home.
To sign up please head to https://www.publichealthslough.co.uk/campaigns/active-ambassador-programme/ there is then a bespoke page for either Early Years or Primary schools.
Please consider promoting this to your contacts and across the various communities that you work with.
If you have any questions then please contact Active Movement (Peter) directly - firstname.lastname@example.org
