Everybody active, every day: An evidence-based approach to physical activity
‘Everybody active, every day’ is a national, evidence-based approach to support all sectors to embed physical activity into the fabric of daily life and make it an easy, cost-effective and ‘normal’ choice in every community in England.
PHE has co-produced the framework with over 1,000 national and local leaders in physical activity and is calling for action from providers and commissioners in: health, social care, transportation, planning, education, sport and leisure, culture, the voluntary and community sector, as well as public and private employers.
To make active lifestyles a reality for all, the framework’s 4 areas for action will:
- change the social ‘norm’ to make physical activity the expectation
- develop expertise and leadership within professionals and volunteers
- create environments to support active lives
- identify and up-scale successful programmes nationwide
‘Everybody active, every day’ is part of the cross-government ‘Moving More, Living More’ campaign for a more active nation as part of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy.
