Conditions are improving so unless things change overnight it will be collections as usual on Wednesday. We will also have crews out collecting missed bins from Tuesday. Thanks for your patience.

One Body One Life

Evidence base for One Body One Life

One body, one life.

Evidence base for One Body, One Life is an article accepted by "The Journal of Obesity" describing the service evaluation of One Body One Life. Physiological and behaviour measures were recorded at the beginning and end of the programme.

Out of a total of 454 participants, 358 (79%) completed. From these completers 293 (64%) were analysed as there was sufficient data. The use of "high visibility recruitment" led to 77% of completers being from Coventry's two most deprived population quintiles.Ethnic minorities were also well represented. There were statistically significant self-reported behaviour changes, with improvements in fruit and vegetables eaten and decrease in consumption of crisps, snacks, and take away foods. There were also significant increases in physical activity. There were small but statistically significant improvements in BMI/BMI percentile for adults and children who started the programme overweight/obese.

These results demonstrate the programmes' effectiveness in enabling behaviour change, and attracting participants from deprived communities.

One Body One Life has also been awarded the Olympic Inspire Mark, which is a fantastic achievement.
