HEALTH COMMITMENT STATEMENT (HCS)

The HCS reflects Government policy and legal trends, which recognises that individuals are able, when given the appropriate information about the risks inherent in getting active, to make informed decisions about their own health and wellbeing. Ultimately there are very few conditions which cannot be improved by taking regular exercise, and the HCS seeks to make it as easy as possible to get active.
