Physical activity to promote health and well-being in the schools and workplaces of Essex

Over 250,000 adults in Essex are inactive (doing less than 30 minutes of physical activity per week). Our own research has shown that fitness of Essex schoolchildren declined by 10% between 1998 and 2008 and that the rate of decline is accelerating. The high levels of inactivity are causing increased health risk and costing the NHS in Essex alone £58 million each year. Radical change is needed to turn this situation around and find out what works to increase physical activity in schools and workplaces which act as two important gatekeepers for access to population at large.

Please read the full terms and conditions before applying or accepting a scholarship, bursary or studentship. They will contain important information about eligibility, how you will receive your funding and whether this award can be combined with others or not.

Under the radar: Examining Sub-National-level athlete's attitudes towards prohibited forms of performance enhancement

Doping prevalence rates in elite sport are well documented. However, little is known about athlete attitudes towards, and reported use of prohibited forms of performance enhancement below this level. This lack of research is particularly problematic at a Sub-National-level, where athletes are competing outside of tested competitions, often exposed to a range of new social influences, and experiencing an insecure career environment. Together, these factors may do little to deter athletes from doping. Through your involvement in this project it is hoped that we may illuminate the antecedent cognitive processes that underpin doping attitudes, while also examining the scale of reported use.
