Youth Sport Trust signs up to Responsibility Deal

The Youth Sport Trust has today agreed to sign up to the Department of Health's Responsibility Deal - a new mechanism to improve public health outcomes.

The deal sees leading organisations linking up and sharing expertise on ways to encourage people to make healthier lifestyle choices.

It covers areas including food, physical activity, alcohol, and health in the workplace, with the Youth Sport Trust agreeing to be a partner in the physical activity strand of this work.

Phil Chamberlain, director of communications at the Youth Sport Trust, said:

"As a leading organsation for PE and school sport it makes absolute sense for us to be part of the Responsibility Deal.  We know that when young people lead fit and healthy lifestyles it helps them to develop confidence and self esteem and can lead to them performing better in the classroom.

"By teaching the importance of a healthy diet and exercise at an early age the lessons the young people are learning will help to support them to develop into healthy and physically active adults."
