#BeeWell Wednesday – May newsletter

New #BeeWell publications on wellbeing & physical activity 

Following feedback from our Coalition of Partners, #BeeWell will be publishing a series of thematic briefings on the drivers of wellbeing. We are so excited to share the first of these briefings using the 2022 survey data, focused on physical activity & wellbeing!

The short briefing explores the relationship between the two and the inequalities in physical activity levels amongst different cohorts of young people. You can read the full briefing here.

The briefing is published alongside a blog, authored by Kitty McCarthy (Queen Mary University London), exploring the potential economic value of the relationship between physical activity and wellbeing. Read this on our website here.

We would love to hear from you on your thoughts about the briefing and the actions your organisation could take to respond to this data. Get in touch with with any reflections!
