ukactive, a not-for-profit health body representing physical activity, is seeking the views of the public – and Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham, is encouraging people take part in its consultation.
Evidence is being gathered for the second edition of ‘Generation Inactive’ – a report originally published in 2015, which laid bare the physical inactivity crisis facing Britain’s children. Although physical activity has been shown to improve the health of children, today’s children are the least active generation in history.
Now, ukactiveKIDS – the youth arm of the health body – has launched a consultation and is seeking the views of children, parents, teachers, activity providers, social workers, health professionals, and others, to help plot the next chapter in the health of Britain’s children.
ukactive is a great organisation chaired by Teesside based Tanni Grey-Thompson and I’m pleased to play my part in helping their mission. The health and physical activity of our children is a hugely important subject, and I’d encourage anyone in Stockton North with an interest to take part in the consultation.
Alex will also be meeting with representatives of ukactive in the near future. The consultation runs until 1 June 2018, and can be carried out via the website: www.ukactivekids.com.
