Small Change Big Difference

Volume 447: debated on Monday 5 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps her Department and its agencies have taken following the launch of the Government's Small Change Big Difference Campaign. (72010)

The Department has not yet taken specific steps as a direct result of the launch of the Small Change Big Difference campaign. However, working largely through Sport England, the lead national body for promoting grassroots participation in sport, we are supporting a range of initiatives to help increase participation in sport and active recreation which reflect and support the campaign's advice.

As the programme of work develops, the Department of Health will be working across all of government to ensure the programme joins up to promote maximum impact. DOH is leading the implementation for this initiative as part of its cross-government commitment to deliver the public health White Paper Choosing Health.
