BOB STP is pleased to be supporting the #MovingCan campaign which launches on 1 August, as part of our prevention work programme, which supports people to make and maintain positive lifestyle behaviour.

“There are five areas that we will be focussing on, under our prevention programme to help  improve health and well-being in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire:  alcohol, smoking, physical inactivity, obesity and mental wellbeing with a focus on ‘making every contact count’.

“We are delighted to support the #MovingCan campaign as it  provides everyone who lives and works in the BOB STP area with easy actions they can take to make positive lifestyle changes” says Katie Summers Chief Information Officer – Berkshire West CCG and Prevention Lead for BOB STP.

The 31-day campaign will highlight a different benefit of being active each day, to help people look at ways in which they incorporate being active into their everyday lives.

The campaign has been developed by Get Berkshire Active.

Here’s a link with details about the campaign #MovingCan 

To get the campaign start with a ‘bang’ #MovingCan have set up a social media Thunderclap.  More than 100 organisations/individuals have signed up to this already giving a social media reach in excess of 193,000 people. 

Campaign organiser Get Berkshire Active is encouraging voluntary, health and local government organisations  and the public across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to sign up to help them reach their target of having ¼ million involved by 1 August.

This campaign is a great example of NHS and local authority organisations working in partnership with the voluntary sector, to help people improve their health and well-being.
