As a Network, we are committed to ensuring that all children & young people have a clear understanding of what it means to lead a healthy life for life. We achieve this through a range of interventions including our own bespoke Health & Wellbeing programme which through curriculum delivery at a targeted primary age group builds an understanding of why it is important to be healthy & fit. As a Network, we also hold lead status for Health & Wellbeing for Central London.

Working with children and families is a key priority for us at the Network. In the 2018/2019 academic year we worked with over 1500 children and families.
Our programme aims to:
Transform habits and tackle the sedentary behaviour at home/outside of school
Provide practical support and guidance for parents to improve engagement in their children’s health and physical activity levels
Highlight the important role of family and peer influence on children’s physical activity levels and food intake
Create a family-friendly active network
Our family cookery workshops support improvements in wellbeing through cook & eat sessions bringing families and schools together - an opportunity for families to not only gain healthy living advise and recommendations but also provide a time for family bonding and learning.
The PESSN Parent Wellbeing Hub is open to parents and families seeking all things healthy living – nutrition advice, physical activity & mental health. Our Health Newsletter also provides up to date information on local health programmes & community initiatives in Southwark as well as health news, tips and advice.
