Working with local organisations, Change4Life Kensington and Chelsea supports children, young people and families and aims to make it easier for children and young people to eat well and be active.
Children are recommended to be physically active for at least 60 minutes each day. This has been hard during lockdown, but with the easing of the rules, families can now go outdoors be more physically active while social distancing and having fun.
Kensington and Chelsea Council, Westminster City Council and the bi-borough Change4Life programme have produced the Naturally Active summer campaign to encourage families to venture out into nature, keep moving and enjoy the benefits of spending time outdoors. The campaign also supports local organisations to deliver bespoke activities to get children and families physically active this summer, through the Change4Life small grants. The grant scheme opens on Tuesday 21 July and will close when all funding has been committed so early applications are advised.
As part of the summer campaign a booklet has been produced that features games and activities children and families can do in their own time in and around their local green spaces. From choosing to organise their own treasure hunt to creating a hanging sculpture made from natural decorations, there are range of fun ideas that would make children feel closer to nature. To download the booklet please visit this link or email Marina Kroyer at email@example.com
Families who complete five activities from the booklet and send pictures of them doing the activity, can enter our prize draw. They could win one of five £20 Sainsbury’s vouchers! Just use this email address firstname.lastname@example.org
