FFLP receives prestigious Public Health award

We are delighted to announce that The Food for Life Partnership has been presented with a Health Promotion and Community Well Being Award by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH).

The awards recognise good practice and achievement in the development and implementation of health promotion and community wellbeing strategies and initiatives. Our independent evaluation, which demonstrates FFLP’s proven impact on children’s health, community engagement and tackling inequalities, underpinned our successful application

RSPH assessors also visited Batley Girls High School, a Bronze awarded school in West Yorkshire, to see how the FFLP framework has supported the school in practice to transform their food culture. Read the school's case study here.

The aim of the awards is to showcase the contribution of health promotion to public health in the UK with criteria based around the principles of the Ottawa Charter.

Professor Richard Parish, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Public Health said “The 2012 winners are great examples of good practice in health promotion.  The Royal Society for Public Health is proud to offer these organisations the opportunity to demonstrate and celebrate their success through our Health Promotion Awards scheme.  I would like to congratulate the winners whose passion, commitment and hard work is most admired!”

Libby Grundy, FFLP Director added:
We are absolutely delighted that the Food for Life Partnership has been acknowledged by RSPH for our work. The award recognises our commitment to tackling health inequalities through the transformation of food culture in schools and their surrounding communities.  It gives us an outstanding platform for the continued development of the programme and further extension of its positive impact across the country.
