Go4Fun is a free program for NSW children aged 7 to 13 who are above a healthy weight, and their families. Run by trained health and community professionals, it's a fun way to build self-esteem and learn about eating well, staying active and living a healthy life.
Go4Fun takes place during school terms (usually after school), with sessions running once a week for two hours, over a ten-week period. In the first hour, children and adults learn about healthy eating for the whole family. In the second hour, children enjoy game-based activities, while the adults discuss how to work on better health at home.
Go4Fun is a family focused program – a parent or carer must come to every session. If you can't make it, you can ask grandparents, aunts, uncles or adult siblings to stand in.
Go4Fun is held in sports centres, schools and community centres in a number of council areas in Sydney Local Health District. Visit go4fun.com.au to find a program near you.
Aboriginal Go4Fun has been culturally adapted for Aboriginal Children and their families. It is run in partnership with Sydney Local Health District and the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence.
