Meet The Team

The Healthy Stadia team has a broad range of experts specialising in physical activity interventions, public health nutrition through to tobacco control experts and policy advisors.

We utilise relevant health behaviour change theories alongside social marketing and communication techniques to change knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of individuals and populations. Healthy Stadia develop, deliver and evaluate a wide range of training programmes, which builds capacity and capability of staff, volunteers and the wider public to deliver behaviour change interventions.

Healthy Stadia also has a successful track record of influencing politicians, policy influencers, the public and the media in support of public health interventions. This has involved framing problems and solutions; communicating benefits and building partnerships and alliances.
