Registered Charity no. 1127806
The Premier League Charitable Fund PFA funded project is coming towards its second year of delivery. Since the project’s launch in September 2012, it has engaged with 11 of the primary schools in North Hammersmith and Fulham. The innovative health and well-being programme provides approximately 90 students at each school with a comprehensive six week healthy lifestyle curriculum to empower the borough’s young people to become healthy adults. The fun and interactive classroom sessions aim to stimulate discussions on the importance of physical activity; a plentiful diet; maintaining good oral hygiene and not smoking as an adult. QPR Health Stars is delivered in partnership with Phoenix Family and Community Engagement; Kickbutt; Hammersmith Community Gardens Association; Tri-borough Public Health and the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Trust. All of the project’s content and learning materials have been formulated in accordance with the National Curriculum, Every Child Matters, UNICEF Rights of a Child and Healthy Schools Guidelines. To ensure the health and wellbeing messages from the classroom are transferred to the home, parent workshops are facilitated by our trained health professionals to ensure positive lifestyle choices are undertaken by the whole family.
