Two leisure and culture trusts have been chosen as shortlisted entrants for the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) Health and Wellbeing Awards 2017, the UK’s premier awards scheme for promoting health and wellbeing.

LiveWire Warrington CIC have been selected as one of three finalists in the ‘Healthier Lifestyle’ category for their ‘Fit to Tackle’ programme. In partnership with the Warrington Wolves Foundation, the highly successful programme offers free beginners weight loss sessions for men and women, boasting accumulative weight loss of participants of over 500 stone over the last two and a half years.

In the ‘Community Health Development’ category, Mytime Active are recognised for their role in ‘Active Local Links’, a programme aiming to train parents and volunteers to provide information and signposting for other parents on activities that promote increased levels of physical activity and healthy lifestyles across London.

The Awards recognise and celebrate a wide range of activities, policies and strategies that empower communities and individuals, improve the population’s health and address the wider social determinants of health. The success of Sporta members in being chosen as finalists shows the important role community NDPO leisure and culture trusts play in delivering the Public Health agenda.

The winners will be announced at the RSPH Awards 2017 ceremony which will take place on Thursday 19 October at the East Wintergarden in London.
