Games4Life is the latest campaign from the Department of Health's Change4Life public health policy. In a summer which will see over 1,200 hours of sport being aired on television it is hoped that the excitement these events generate will encourage people to get involved and get active.
The Games4Life website allows visitors to complete a brief questionnaire and then receive a free personalised activity plan. These plans can be tailored to accommodate activities for children and adults.
The site also provides access to a Fun Generator which provides a rapid way to identify fun activities for indoors and outdoors and for individuals or groups. There are over 100 different activities available so there should be something for everyone. It is also available for mobile devices running iOS and Android.
Action: Clinicians should be aware of this new campaign. It may be a useful resource for patients who are motivated to increase their activity levels.
