The Physical Activity and Health Alliance (PAHA) is delighted to announce that the Physical Activity & Health Alliance Awards are being offered for the fourth year running!

NHS Health Scotland is committed to sharing practice that improves health and reduces health inequalities across Scotland. More specifically, the PAHA is focused on supporting the ongoing implementation of the National Physical Activity strategy ‘Let’s Make Scotland More Active’ (2003) and encouraging others to embed inequalities into their work.

PAHA are seeking nominations of physical activity programmes from a range of settings, sectors and professions in Scotland. This is the opportunity to raise the profile of local work, as well as help build capacity by sharing inspirational practice and experiences with others.

The awards will be celebrated at the Annual National PAHA Conference on 24 April 2014. Award winners will be given the opportunity to hold a stall at the marketplace of the Annual National Conference and will also feature as case studies on the newly developed case study section of the PAHA website.

Do you work in any of the following category areas and can you nominate a physical activity programme from your area of practice?

This year, there are 6 categories covering the broad range of people, activities and environments pertinent to physical activity in Scotland. These are:

  • Community Wide Programmes
  • NHS Scotland
  • Education
  • Active Travel & Planning
  • Sport and Recreation
  • Physical Activity Awareness

Anyone can nominate a person, programme or organisation for a PAHA Award.

The nomination form and supporting guidance note can be found on the PAHA website.
