This was a great project to work on with lots of lessons we can all adopt.
The team from Public Health Wales approached us about designing something that would help improve the health and wellbeing of children and families in North Wales. Based on the five ways to wellbeing, we designed this bilingual chart to encourage families to challenge each other to get healthier.
It had to be simple to use and engaging for all ages. Our solution was a simple challenge to hit five key areas on a given week. The more targets you meet, the bigger your score. At the end of the week you tot up the scores and see who's the winner!
The printed chart is also available to download. Using the QR code in the corner, families just need to point their camera phone at it and they're taken directly to the website to download another copy to print and use the following week.
Teresa Owen, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s Executive Director of Public Health said: “I am delighted to see the launch of the Healthy Family Chart Challenge during this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week. I hope the chart will be a fun way to bring families together and help them improve their health and wellbeing. It will also be an opportunity for families to reflect on their week, and appreciate the time they have spent together, to notice, give, be active, connect, and to learn.”
