For example; The NICE Physical Activity ROI tool helps public health professionals make an economic assessment of existing or planned interventions that result in weight loss. You will need a laptop/pad device with access to the Excel tool with Macros enabled, which can be downloaded from here: https://www.nice.org.uk/about/what-we-do/into-practice/return-on-investment-tools/physical-activity-return-on-investment-tool
Examining the results of new research on behaviour change for the less active, Dannielle Roberts from Proper Active oversaw this workshop looking at which behavioural principles are relevant to sport and physical activity and how to create positive environments for those new to exercise.
Active Surrey, with support from the Eikon youth charity and a local leisure centre, presented a case study on the Friday Night Project programme. Sharing best practise for engaging teens in positive activity at times of low leisure centre demand, it outlined what's worked and what's not so far.
