About Change4Life

Loads of people have already made a Change4Life – and more are joining in every day

What is Change4Life

These days, 'modern life' can mean that we’re a lot less active. With so many opportunities to watch TV or play computer games, and with so much convenience and fast food available, we don't move about as much, or eat as well as we used to.

Change4Life for your kids

Nine out of 10 of our kids today could grow up with dangerous amounts of fat in their bodies. This can cause life-threatening diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Change4Life for you

By the time we reach middle age, the majority of us could do with losing at least a bit of weight. Being overweight isn't just about the way we look. It can lead to more aches and pains, problems sleeping and people report a loss of energy and confidence. It also increases our chances of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Middle age comes to everyone – 'middle aged spread' doesn’t have to. You've taken the first step towards getting yourself or your kids eating well, moving more and living longer just by being here – so welcome to Change4Life!

National partners

We have a single aim: to motivate and support millions more people to make and sustain changes that will improve their health.

It's a big task. That's why our national partnerships are crucial. Together, we can deliver more effective campaigns and ensure our public health messages reach the people who will really benefit from them.

We work with major national retailers, household name brands and major organisations, including commercial brands as well as government departments and NGOs, providing them with all the support and materials they need to change health outcomes and to help influence people's behaviour across the country.

To find out more about how you can collaborate with us please visit Public Health England's information for national partners.

 

Do you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland?

Change4Life is an England and Wales campaign, but that doesn't mean you can't use the advice here to start making changes, even if you don't live in England or Wales. There are also these helpful sites for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
