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

Fairbridge in Scotland is a national charity giving young people from three of the most disadvantaged areas a fairer chance to succeed in life. Using a unique combination of long-term personal support and challenging activities, Fairbridge enables young people to build a sense of self-worth and develop the personal, social and life skills they need to enjoy a future full of choice and opportunity.
