The ACTIVE Project, funded by the British Heart Foundation, aimed to see whether giving teenagers vouchers to spend on activities of their choice can reduce the time spent being sedentary, improve fitness, lower the risk of heart disease and improve general health. ACTIVE worked with over 70 teenagers from seven secondary schools in Swansea, over the 12 month study period with 8,000 monthly £20 vouchers handed out for them to use on things like dancing, football, swimming, karate, skateboarding or BMXing
At the ACTIVE Workshop we will be presenting our findings, raising awareness and discussing future developments for physical activity in the local area. The aim of this event is to create discussions and promote collaborative working to take physical activity opportunities forward for young people.
