28 (28) ACTIVE LIVES CO-ORDINATOR – The
Service Director Neighbourhood and Environment submitted a report
advising the Cabinet Member of new funding for a joint project in
North and North East Lincolnshire to increase levels of physical
activity and encourage healthier eating through the training and
support of Community Health Educators, and seeking approval for the
appointment of an externally funded Active Lives Co-ordinator.
The Big Lottery Fund made £165 million available to 20
regional schemes in the country aimed at improving health and
well-being. The local Strategic Health Authority submitted a bid
and was successful in receiving £7.2 million for the
Yorkshire and Humber area. Within this funding, North and North
East Lincolnshire were to run a project called “Leading the
Way to Active Lives”. The project would run for three years
from July 2008.
Training and support would be provided to people in the local
area to equip them with the necessary skills, competencies and
confidence to be able to run sporting clubs, other clubs or groups
encouraging physical activity and healthier eating and to cascade
healthier living advice throughout the area.
The project was a partnership between North Lincolnshire and
North East Lincolnshire Councils, North Lincolnshire Primary Care
Trust, North East Lincolnshire Care Trust Plus and Northern
Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust. One full time Co-ordinator
and one full time equivalent Community Food Worker would be
employed. It was proposed that North Lincolnshire Council employ
the Co-ordinator and that North Lincolnshire Primary Care Trust and
Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust employ a part time
Community Food Worker each.
Resolved – (a) That the appointment of an
externally funded Active Lives Co-ordinator for a period of three
years be approved, and (b) that the staffing implications be
referred to the Corporate Services Cabinet Member for approval.
