Act-i-Pass provides children in Grade 5 (+1) with FREE access to community-based physical activity opportunities for a whole year.
Research shows that physical activity begins to decrease in children as early as the age of 9 years. If grade 5 students can access physical activity opportunities, they will be given a chance at better health, longer lives, less illness, reduced screen time, and more play! Since Act-i-pass started in 2012, over 10,000 children in London have benefited from the program.
Family Centres are located in neighbourhoods, where families live, work, play, and go to school. They offer welcoming locations that are easy to access and staffed by knowledgeable professionals. Family Centres bring services to families in an integrated, accessible, and family-friendly way.
Family Centres are located in schools intentionally to provide families with a connection to the school environment long before children are old enough to attend.
Family Centres use a resident led neighbourhood engagement process to guide business and establish the unique strengths and assets of the neighbourhood.
Harvest Bucks are vouchers used to buy fresh vegetables and fruit at various locations in London. Harvest Bucks may be purchased by individuals or organizations. Sponsored Harvest Bucks are distributed as part of community programs that support healthy eating.
