Our new Social Enterprise, Evolve: A Social Impact Company manages and delivers Project HERO- Health Engagement: Real Outcomes. HERO is an innovative, preventative intervention to combat inactivity and obesity in children. As most behavioural patterns are established by the age of 11, HERO is delivered at source in primary schools to make the biggest impact. Physical Literacy, Physical Engagement and Active learning are our mantra - and we are looking to add the support of on line, on screen activities to fully engage young learners. HERO has received praise from OFSTED and headteachers state that it improves attendance, attainment and behaviour of pupils. After extensive regional trials in four areas we are now ready to up scale to go national - starting with London. We are also looking to find the best technology partner to add a virtual "HERO world" to our programme. As part of our growth plans we are establishing an Evolve Charitable Trust to help with funding.
