The Havering Active initiative is supported by a number of partners. Below is a list of some of the key partners and how they support local residents to become more physically active.
Havering Health & Sports Development
The Havering Health & Sports Development Team lead on the Havering Activie initiative, populating both the Havering Active webpages, and facebook/twitter accounts. Our aim is to enable the community to participate in sport and physical activity and take steps towards leading a healthy lifestyle.
Change 4 Life
Change4Life is a public health programme in England which began in January 2009, run by the Department of Health. It is the country's first national social marketing campaign to tackle obesity. In Havering we have developed Change4Life Challenge clubs which are delivered by the Havering Sports Collective and as a borough we have also been involved with the 10 minute Shake Up from Change4Life with Disney.
We have a simple aim: to help make London happier, healthier and stronger through sport. We do this by working in partnership with the numerous organisations involved in physical activity and sport in London
Havering Sports Council
Havering Sports Council is the collective voice for sport in the borough and is the body with which Havering Council consults on issues relating to sport.
Havering Disabled Sports Association
Public health is about helping people to stay healthy and protect them from threats to their health.
The Council's Public Health service looks at the health status of everyone in the borough and helps plan the service provision that will be needed:
- To keep as many people healthy and active as possible, preferably out of hospital
- Ensure they live long and healthy lives.
Through sport the StreetGames Network changes lives, changes sport and changes communities.
The StreetGames charity was set up by half a dozen organizers of neighbourhood sports projects. In 2005 they came together to make sport more widely available for disadvantaged young people and to maximize the power of sport to change young lives and to change disadvantaged communities. StreetGames promotes Doorstep Sport – that is sport in disadvantaged communities that takes place at the right time, at the right place, in the right style and at the right price.
YMCA is the largest and the oldest charity working with young people in the world. Across England there are 114 YMCAs. Each one is a thriving and active community. A community that is transforming lives.
We’re called Everyone Active for a reason – we have built a strong reputation for delivering well-managed leisure facilities, which have successfully proven to encourage everyone to be more active.
Havering Sports Collective
The Havering Sports Collective aims to keep all schools in the London Borough of Havering joined together through PE and Sport. We create opportunities for developing relationships between primary and secondary schools through sports competition and leadership as well as providing CPD, Health and Safety advice and the most up to date information on how PE and School Sport can impact on learning and achievement
