Obesity Research

Braintree District Council is commissioning research into Livewell, a 3-year campaign aimed at reducing the proportion of children who become overweight or obese during primary school (from their baseline) and to increase the physical activity levels of all children. This project design is based on a whole systems approach to obesity. It incorporates the Foresight Report findings and supports the Government Childhood Obesity Action Plan (DoH, 2016). BDC requires an evaluation for first year of the Livewell programme. This first year will be seen as a pilot and outcomes will then influence the next stages of the programme.

Deadline for proposals: 25 November

Funding available: £50,000 – £100,000
