Childhood obesity seminar for the voluntary and community sector

Childhood obesity seminar for the voluntary and community sector

This free one-day seminar hosted by NCB, the Department of Health and Public Health England (PHE) will provide a forum for exploring how the voluntary and community sector (VCS) can support children to lead healthy, active lives, particularly those in deprived communities. It is also an opportunity to hear directly from the Department of Health and PHE about their plans to reduce childhood obesity, including updates on the implementation of the Childhood obesity: a plan for action published last year. Discussion will focus on the implications of these developments for VCS organisations; how the sector’s experience of working with children can contribute to reductions in childhood obesity; and how the VCS can influence future action on health inequalities.
