Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Earlier this year, the Scottish Executive published ‘Working and Learning Together toBuild Stronger Communities’, guidance setting out a long-term framework forcommunity learning and development. The guidance sets out national priorities andemphasises that the Scottish Executive sees community learning and developmentas a key tool in delivering on our commitment to social justice.This collection of case studies complements that guidance. For me, it brings alive theexciting way that community learning and development can make a positive impacton people’s lives and help to close the opportunity gap.
